FROM THE GRILL TO THE PLATE
Barbecues go hand-in-hand with summer but there are options other than plastic plates.
The Villeroy & Boch BBQ Passion collection (pictured below) is designed to cater for barbecues, including lamb cutlets through to grilled prawns, and skewers.
Marketing manager Francesca Caleffi says the collection includes large steak plates, with separate areas for sauces.
“The barbecue has become a playground for new culinary specialties, where the options are endless and a simple dinner plate is no longer enough,” Francesca says. “This collection provides barbecue lovers with high-quality tableware suitable for serving meat, seafood and vegetables.”
For keen entertainers, cocktails are ideal to offer guests on a lazy summer afternoon.
Uber Bar Tools has a range of copper bar tools which CEO Michael Silvers says are contemporary and stylish — perfect for creating an impression when making drinks for guests at home.
“Our copper tools offer a polished twist, typically experienced in trendy bars, in the comfort of your own home,” he says.
For those who want to smarten up the table, Ikea’s recently released SVARTAN collection is inspired by India. The SVARTAN bowls, bottles and tealight holders are ideal.
