For the sweet finale
Even after a few amuse-bouches, a cold starter, a fish and meat course and various entremets, most people still have space for a delicious dessert. It doesn't matter how perfectly you cooked the Chateaubriand, for many guests, the apple strudel afterwards remains the highlight of the meal. Many dishes, such as fish or steak, are accompanied by a special knife; for desserts, there are the dessert knives from Villeroy & Boch. They are equal to the normal table knives in quality and design, but their size makes them ideally suited to little treats after the main course, such as tartelettes, crepes with fruit, or ice cream gateau.
Our design for your style
Just like the porcelain services, the styles of the cutlery sets vary widely in terms of shape and décor. This variety allows you to base your choice of collection either on your existing service or on a certain occasion, without having to lose sight of your own personal style. You will always find dessert knives for everyday use that match the look for your table, be it modern or rustic. For special occasions, when you lay the table with premium bone porcelain, Villeroy & Boch offers you beautifully-formed cutlery with partial gilding or original shapes that subtly highlight the look of the table.
Putting the steel under the microscope
The cutlery collections from Villeroy & Boch are produced from premium stainless steel. Made from an ingenious alloy, the ergonomic designs produce robust, well-balanced knives that sit very comfortably in the hand. Stainless steel is also the perfect choice for the look of the dessert knives. The metal is processed with great care, giving the fine surfaces on the handle and the blade an elegant look at all times. The knives other big advantage can be seen after the meal – the dessert knives are dishwasher safe, so you can spend the digestif time with your guests and not at the sink.
Teamwork at the table
But a dessert knife alone will not cut it – needless to say, Villeroy & Boch also offers matching dessert forks and spoons, many of which can also be used for starters. Although the table tends to look more harmonious when the dessert knives and forks come from the same collection as the rest of the cutlery, you are not tied to a single set. A little break in style, like dessert plates that make a different colour statement to the dinner plates with dessert cutlery chosen to match, can sometimes highlight the dessert in a very special way. Listen to your taste and be just as creative laying the table as you are cooking the dinner itself.
