When eating becomes a real treat, it is often thanks not only to the ingredients, but also to the way the dishes are presented. Served on a gourmet plate from Villeroy & Boch, every filet mignon becomes a treat for the eyes. Read more...
Be it leg, shank or fillet, tender lamb is considered by gourmets to be one of the best types of meat. Similar to the exquisite Japanese Kobe beef, it is best served with very few accompaniments, on a beautiful gourmet plate. Fresh ciabatta, green salad or various types of potato take a back seat, leaving the gourmet meat in the spotlight. Arrange them attractively on dining plates from Villeroy & Boch, whose beautiful designs and clean-lined shapes underscore every dish. In the past, serving gourmet dishes on special plates would have been unimaginable. It was only in the 16th Century that classic dining plates with an indentation and raised rim entered the courts of the aristocracy, distinguishing themselves more and more from underplates, serving plates and gourmet plates over time.
While in Germany, the term “gourmet” is used to describe a person who appreciates good food, in France, where the word originates, it usually designates a wine connoisseur. But the two terms are not all that distant relations, as an aromatic red or white wine is the classic accompaniment to any good meal. If the glasses are matched to the elegant porcelain plates from Villeroy & Boch, the result is a magnificently decorated table that reflects the exclusivity of any gourmet dinner. The varied collections have the perfect shapes and décors for any style. From classic elegance to modern understatement, the round and rectangular porcelain gourmet plates conjure a cultivated atmosphere onto any table in white or with colourful motifs.
When premium porcelain is turned into perfectly-formed gourmet plates, you know that they are high-quality products from Villeroy & Boch. The dinner plates made from premium porcelain impress in everyday use thanks not only to their design, but also to their high impact resistance and strong rims. Most of them are easy to clean in the dishwasher. The delicate décors are coated in a glaze that protects the beautiful patterns from very high temperatures in the microwave or very low ones in the fridge. For special occasions, the white premium bone porcelain of the exclusive gourmet plates shimmers attractively; its high calcinated bone ash content gives it a particular shine. Treat yourself and your guests with the high-quality gourmet plates that perfectly underscore the taste of exquisite delicacies.
For a particularly magnificent look, combine your gourmet plates from Villeroy & Boch with beautiful porcelain tableware from the same collection. When used for a multi-course dinner, the shapes and designs are repeated throughout the meal, creating a harmonious concept for the entire table. Those who prefer not to purchase the plates individually can choose a set of gourmet plates, which is also an ideal gift for a wedding or anniversary. When giving dinner plates as a gift, why not include some tips on how to serve and decorate gourmet dishes. While the main ingredient is arranged in the centre of the plate – often on a bed of vegetables to raise it and make it look all the tastier – the rest of the porcelain tableware is left untouched. This gives the meal the attention it deserves.
