The right cutlery for every occasion
Whether you are serving a classic salmon fillet on wilted spinach as the third course after the soup, or an avocado and tomato salad with halibut introduces the dinner as the starter, when dining on aromatic fish dishes, connoisseurs intuitively look for the fork with the unusual look, usually positioned in second place on the left-hand side, next to the dinner fork. Easy to recognise by the indentation in the middle, the relatively short fish fork with its flat shape is especially helpful in lifting the flesh of the fish away from any bones. Fish forks and knives are first mentioned as dining cutlery in the 19th Century. The introduction of special eating tools was probably a kind of status symbol that served to distinguish the nobility from the lower classes, who were by then also eating their meals with a knife and fork.
Attractive and practical helpers
The fact that a fish fork from Villeroy & Boch is a very special kind of dining cutlery is not only thanks to its eye-catching design – it also stands out from the other forks on the table thanks to its slightly raised position. Its individual character comes from the elongated gap between the centre tines. This small opening means that only the firm, fine flesh of the fish reaches your mouth, as it allows any unnecessary juices to run off. Thanks to the broader, larger surface, the fish sits nicely on the fish fork and can be enjoyed in its entirety. The fish forks from Villeroy & Boch have an elegant appearance and can be perfectly arranged with the remaining table cutlery, making an attractive statement alongside porcelain plates and glasses.
Experience tells us to rely on quality
The charming fish cutlery from Villeroy & Boch impresses with both its stylish look and the high-quality raw materials used in its craftsmanship. While cutlery was made from galvanised iron for many centuries, its production from stainless steel is what now gives it its shine and practical properties. The material makes the fish forks resistant to the acids in food, rust-free and robust. As the pieces are created for daily use in modern life, Villeroy & Boch sets great store by making sure that they are easy to clean in the dishwasher. With their individual décors, the beautiful forks in the various collections underscore any cutlery arrangement. Be it class elegance or simple modernity, the diverse selection of fish forks from Villeroy & Boch adapts expertly to any style.
Unity in togetherness
Because cutlery sets rarely include special cutlery such as fish forks and knives, it is worth adding the beautiful fish cutlery from Villeroy & Boch to your classic table cutlery. This allows you to complete your dining table in style on special occasions and enjoy a sea bream on a bed of vegetables with the right cutlery. In the past, cutlery sets have always been very popular gifts for weddings or housewarmings. When two households come together, there is usually a need for order and harmony. Give tasteful cutlery such as the fish forks from Villeroy & Boch as a gift together with a cutlery set and bring a touch of glamour and taste to the homes of your friends and family.
