A passion for food + fashion

Appetite for Design

Square plates are kinda 80s, I know, but I couldn’t resist these 6-inch-square plates from Heath Ceramics to use for hors d’oeuvres. Usually when friends come over for dinner, Mr. Foodinista jumps on the opportunity to get a round of his favorite gooey Cowgirl Creamery Red Hawk Cheese, as well as some thinly sliced Fra Mani Toscano salami—fare that requires more than a paper cocktail napkin to handle. For years, I’ve been using some frumpy old Williams Sonoma hors d’oeuvres plates featuring French confiture labels that were a gift many lunes ago, but talk about 80s. (I’m hanging onto them though because it won’t be too long until they’re ironic.) As always, it’s the Heath glazes that make their pieces seem timeless. And I love mixing up the colors—I got a couple each of aqua, linen, matte brown and ruby red to complement our Heath dinnerware, which is French Grey.

  1. To be honest, they don’t look that old fashion. They may even pass for contemporary.

  2. Ahhhhhh……Red Hawk…..mmmmmmmm……….
