The dishware you use is often just as important as the food you’re serving. Prepare a feast for the senses by selecting flatware and plates made of exquisite raw materials, such as natural wood.
Wooden dishware is both stylish and good for the environment. It’s hard not to feel closer to nature when you’re eating mushroom soup from a wooden bowl or cutting your potatoes with a beech wood knife! Vary the texture of the wood (coarse, smooth, veiny) to add even more intrigue to your place setting.
Flatware made from untreated birch, oak or bamboo is relatively easy to find. Better yet, all these materials are biodegradable and compostable. A wicker basket filled with nuts and seasonal fruit (walnuts, grapes, figs) makes the perfect compliment to these natural pieces.
