I ask because there seems to be a growing trend to move away from the traditional round, ceramic receptacles which have done us proud since around 600AD (according to Wikipedia)
In recent times I’ve been presented with steak and chips on something resembling a porcelain trough (pic here) and then last week I was served up a trio of deserts on an off cut of tile courtesy of the caterers of the Big Chip Awards.
It reminds me of that phase of serving chicken in a basket which started as a piece of rustic whimsey (which was actually a basket of sorts) and ended with plastic dishwashable approximations of baskets to hold a basic chicken and chip supper.
I can only imagine what’s round the corner. Food served in all manner of container – water butt? hat? shoes? who knows.
If you encounter any such oddity, please snap it and share it at the Life through Food Flickr group. Be fascinating to see.
