Steelite International has unveiled a collection of square and rectangular plates that it says will allow chefs to ‘frame’ their dishes like works of art.
The tableware specialist has launched the range in response to the growing trend of “multi-sensory gastronomy”, whereby dishes aim to entice and invigorate all of the senses, not just the taste buds.
Heather Lovatt, head of marketing at Steelite International, says the sense of sight has never been such an important aspect and with plating considered by many to be an art form, tableware provides a backdrop for the dish.
She commented: “These plates have been designed to enhance the visual impact of a dish. Chefs can use these plates as a canvas for their food creations, incorporating the architecture of the plate into their food styling. They are versatile and stylish and would be a great option for any fine dining establishment.”
Steelite International is leading manufacturer and supplier of tabletop ranges that has been operating since 1983.
The company’s core chinaware products are manufactured at its factory in Stoke-on-Trent, where up to half a million pieces of ware are made every week.
