Setting the Table

Setting the Table

Part of the pleasure of cooking is gathering your family and friends around the table. Cooks of fashionable as well as culinary inclination aim to present a meal that pleases the eye as well the palate.

Setting a tasteful table that is modern, stylish, and sophisticated is all about great design. Choosing dinnerware that is practical for everyday dining yet elevated enough for elegant entertaining is a study in form and function.

I upgraded my dinnerware from kid-friendly Corelle, to something decidedly more grown-up. When I started looking for a new set, I wasn’t sure what brand I wanted, but I knew I wanted it to be plain white. I just think food looks best on an unadorned, pure white plate.

After some consideration and reading a lot of reviews online, I chose a very chic, classic design by Villeroy & Boch called Artseano.

This award-winning dinnerware is made in Germany of high-quality polished porcelain. It is a very modern interpretation with sleek lines and pronounced rims converging in graceful curves.

The wide-edge plates and bowls give presence and visual interest.I opted for the unique rice bowls which are so wonderfully versatile for everything from soup to cereal.  Artesano is dishwasher- and microwave- safe.

Six months later, with daily use, I’m still loving my new dishes.

Good dishes make good food, and good company even better.
