Chef-Designed Dishware

Chef-Designed Dishware

Function precedes form in this unusual collection of plates and bowls from an Italian chef.

When it comes to entertaining, nothing quite beats a basic white set of dishes. But there comes a time, for some hosts or hostesses, when even the plain white plate or soup tureen just doesn’t work when serving their signature risotto.

Isn’t there dishware designed with a specific dish in mind?

There is. Traditionally, dishware is designed with a focus on, well, design. Yet, Italian chef Massimiliano Alajmo (the youngest chef to ever be awarded three Michelin stars — for his Le Calandre restaurant) has broken this practice, having designed a set of dishes with the plates’ functionality (rather than form) in mind. His “in.gredienti” range, made by Rosenthal, features a variety of dishes, each with a specific use in mind. All plates tilt slightly forward, making the use of the fork preferred over the spoon. Our favorite? His pasta plate, which features a small indentation for twirling pasta — no spoon needed! A similar indentation can be found on the dinner plates; this is useful for serving dishes with thick sauces that you don’t want running all over the plate.

If you've been off the grid for a minute and missed it, meal kits are the new way to cook. Instead of spending time shopping and planning for the week's dinners, meal kit services, like Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon, send a box of fresh, pre-portioned produce and recipes directly to your door so you can start cooking without ever having to plan a recipe or go to the store. Why? To make life more convenient and cooking more enjoyable!

The shift from standard cooking to meal boxes has been quite dramatic since their arrival in 2008. The reason? Meal kits allow people who love cooking (or eating) a faster, more convenient way to enjoy delicious dinners throughout the stressful work week. Given the amount of time we spend eating throughout our lives, it's not so surprising that more people are looking for new ways to enhance this daily need. Food delivery companies offer a unique way to enjoy new culinary experiences without needing too much cooking knowledge to get started.

  1. Ease. The most obvious reason people subscribe to meal prep companies is for simplicity. Cutting out a trip to the grocery store with meals delivered to your door and a few hours a week planning ones recipes goes a long way. Meal kits also make using one-off ingredients much more sustainable, so you don't have to throw a whole head of lettuce when you only needed a leaf.
  2. Flavor. It's no question that cooking with a meal kit takes one's cooking game up a few notches. With step-by-step instructions from experienced chefs, you're able to really get into the process of cooking and learn tricks you can always use again the kitchen.
  3. Variety. We all love our staple recipes—they're easy to plan for, but sometimes it's nice to add some new dishes to the repertoire or simply try a recipe we wouldn't normally think to try. Meal kits are great for sampling vegetarian & vegan dishes or other cuisines without ever leaving your kitchen.
