A treat for a sweet tooth
The evening has not been brought to a close until the pancakes and vanilla ice cream have indulgently rounded off the refined three-course dinner. After all, for many connoisseurs, a sweet treat after the main course is an essential part of any dinner. The sophisticated way to polish off the enticing dessert, the attractive dessert forks from Villeroy & Boch can be found above the dessert plate on any carefully-laid table – usually teamed with a dessert spoon. Before use, the dessert fork is simply moved down and placed on the left-hand side. At the same time, the spoon finds its spot to the right of the dessert. To give the table a harmonious look, choose a dessert fork from the same collection as the other cutlery items, which are of course laid from the inside out, in the opposite order to the courses in the dinner.
Not just for afters...
If a tarte au chocolat is the finishing touch to a dinner, the table should be laid not with dessert forks, but with cake forks. This tool is much smaller than a dessert fork and usually has just three tines, the left-hand tine being wider and stronger than the others. This makes it easy to cut off a piece of the cake even without a knife. The splendid dessert forks from Villeroy & Boch are also excellent as starter forks, should aromatic prunes wrapped in bacon kick off the meal. If the stylish forks are used for the starter, they are positioned on the right-hand edge of the cutlery arrangement, where their immaculate shape perfectly complements the fish and table forks.
Magnificent moments with quality
The starter and dessert forks from Villeroy & Boch impress not only with their charm and confident style, but especially through their high-quality craftsmanship. The different handles of the beautifully-shaped forks underscore any style and give a feeling of lightness in the hand during dinner. Their straight, clean lines and understated elegance are magical on any table. Produced from stainless steel, the forks are not only resistant to the acids in foods – they are robust enough for everyday use. They can be cleaned easily in the dishwasher – even the partially gold-plated desert forks in the Ella collection, which put the spotlight on special moments without dominating.
For that little extra
When you serve a traditional large dinner with six courses, the forks can be combined with dessert knives and dessert spoons to form a full set of dessert cutlery. A comprehensive cutlery set from Villeroy & Boch contains all the relevant eating tools, which can be briefly polished and arranged conveniently next to the table decorations and porcelain plates for a special occasion. A set of different cutlery pieces has always been a beautiful and practical wedding gift. After all, when two households come together, chaos in the cutlery drawer is all but inevitable. A cutlery combination including desert forks brings harmonious order and elegance to the home of the newlyweds, and acts as proof of their good taste.
