SHARING FOOD - SHARING PLEASURE
Increasingly in modern society, friendship groups are taking the place of family and long-term relationship structures. What hasn’t changed is the desire for familiar closeness, love and security. And this has shifted over into the restaurant domain. Long tables and the revival of generous bowls and platters facilitate conviviality, social interaction and a shared delight in culinary treats.
The quality of your coffee is not exclusively determined by the beans and roasting. The barista’s dedicated attention during preparation and serving is vital to allow the flavour to develop. COFFEE TASTING from TAFELSTERN offers a new aesthetic context for this precision art. The concept makes a significant contribution to enhancing your coffee enjoyment.
LET’S BOWL !
It’s hard to think of anything that has revolutionised the international food scene as much as the use of bowls. And we’re not just referring to the cute little bowls that are now firmly established as the new serving dishes in the sector. “Bowls” is also the generic term for the actual food presented in the bowl.
Often diners make their own selections, compiling the specific components depending on their own personal preference. The chef takes responsibility for creating an appetising composition – arranged according to texture, colour and harmonious flavour – served up in the comforting confines of a round porcelain.
The content is just as important as its appearance. Particular attention is paid to the quality and origin of the ingredients. Health-conscious foodies want fresh, compatible ingredients that taste great and won’t automatically result in a food coma.
From black & white to multi-coloured, there are limitless possibilities in terms of colour and decorative patterns for porcelain. Influences from interior design and fashion also have an impact on the decorative design. Current trends include all-over decoration with striking effects to emphasise each restaurateur’s individual concept. Styles vary from handcrafted, rustic effects to refined, artistic flourishes in the high-end designs. A combination of different decorative styles is also popular with the Mix & Match table setting options.
