The right plate makes soup taste great
Whether you are following a haut cuisine recipe or spontaneously knocking up a delicious vegetarian snack – Villeroy & Boch will deck your table with the right soup plates. After all, soup is a great example of a dish for which it's not just the ingredients that turn the meal into a success. As any restaurateur will confirm, the way the meal is presented also plays an important role. So, it's important to decide beforehand whether to put out a soup cup, soup bowl or a traditional deep plate for your guests, and then to add the finishing touch to the table with cutlery sets and glasses selected from one of our other collections.
From the entry to the dessert
No meal is more versatile than soup which is why it also requires versatile plates of different sizes. If you are serving a small portion of broth as a starter, the plate should not look empty – on the other hand, if the main course consists of a hearty potato soup, you don't want your guests to leave the table hungry. Chilled soups as a dessert are generally eaten from a soup bowl. If you are setting the table for an elegant dinner party, we recommend using soup bowls made of premium bone porcelain by Villeroy & Boch which, with their delicate precious metal patterns, will guarantee a festive atmosphere. We also have soup bowls with cheerful winter motifs, especially designed for the festive season.
Special porcelain for everyday use
A stable shape is especially important for soup plates – it not only ensures that the deep bowls remain level on the table, but also that they can be easily and safely stacked in the cupboard. Villeroy & Boch's soup bowls are made of particularly shockproof and chip-resistant premium porcelain or premium bone porcelain. During manufacture, the base is polished so that it does not damage the table or underplate. The glaze also seals any coloured patterns so that, even after intensive use and regular cleaning in the dishwasher, they loose nothing of their vibrancy and shine.
Design tailored to the taste
Villeroy & Boch has always stood for innovative tableware with distinctive elegance. Our designers have a passion for creating new forms, and love to break free from conventional patterns. So our soup bowls may have an oval, square, star-shaped or almost folded appearance, or feature surprising creative patterns. The wide range offers you the possibility of creating individual table settings that seamlessly match your style on every occasion. Don't shy away from creating exciting colour contrasts – serve an opulent tomato soup in a plate with green patterns. If you don't want anything to take the attention away from the natural variety of colours of a rustic vegetable soup, you can rely on our gleaming white premium porcelain.
