Well, add a beautiful and striking piece of tableware, and you've just elevated even that sublime dessert into something truly special. Food is so simple in the spring - especially desserts. No cooking required for these luscious berries.
So our collection of pretty white and silver dishes sometimes acts as inspiration for our cooking; what can I put on this miniature cake plate? What can I put in this bowl that will attract all senses - sight, smell, taste.
The art of the table, after all, is not just about getting food in our stomachs. It's about delighting all the senses and heightening our experiences of food as a blessing and a joy.
Or maybe we are just trying to justify buying this gorgeous white bowl from Carolyne Roehm. Maybe a little of both. But wouldn't it be easy to put a bowl of strawberries on the table and call it a day?
Do you have any tableware that inspires you to cook or bake? What is it?
