Blue is reportedly having a big moment in tableware – and Parsley in Time’s new Innovations publication is designed to show restaurateurs just how flexible it can be.
Innovations is a collection of some of Parsley in Time’s latest launches, brought together to celebrate the hottest trends in the table top and some of the latest gadgets for the commercial kitchen.
For instance, the Glacier range is said to be typical not only of the hot blue trend but also of the fashion for bowls, rimless coup plates and unusual shapes and finishes. Its speckled glaze and hue should set off food and the range of sizes and shapes, includes square and rectangular plates, can add theatre to the table setting.
Glacier is part of the Aura selection, manufactured by Porcelite. Other tableware manufacturers whose products are highlighted in Innovations include Royal Crown Derby, Churchill and Villeroy & Boch.
Elsewhere, one of Parsley in Time’s newest cutlery lines is the Contour Noir range from Robert Welch. It combines a tapered look with black handles to create a fluid design that is said to look striking and be comfortable to use.
Meanwhile the manufacturer’s Drift beverage collection emphasises is supposed to balance the unusual with practicality. Its tea and coffee pots, and accessories, all feature an undulating form that creates highlights across the polished stainless steel.
Another big trend is sustainability and Innovations showcases several of Parsley in Time’s eco-products. They include ‘green’ disposable tableware made of products such as bamboo along with paper straws and metal stirrers.
Innovations is available to download from the Parsley in Time website. Printed copies are also available on request.
