Overrated: Alternative Serving Dishes
Drinks served from jam jars? Dessert served from a flower pot? The Evening Standard restaurant critic Fay Maschler is not convinced by the trend for alternative serving dishes. "I like round white plates. I don’t want square, oblong, cantilevered or bowls so deep that the cutlery slips in and leaves you with mucky hands. I’d rather not have my food served in Kilner jars or containers from a chemistry lab. I don’t want be given nourishment via pipettes, eye droppers, test tubes, beakers, hypodermic needles or intravenously."
