Lombardia Round Sectional Platter - 29 cm Diameter - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter & Glass
A pretty, solid pewter tray, handcrafted by Italian pewterers, and inlaid with four striking glass dishes, is a unique and extremely useful serving platter. The glass and pewter complement each other, as subtle but striking materials, bouncing reflections off of each other, to create a beautiful serving piece. The glass dishes can be removed so that they, and the tray, can be used separately if you wish.
Hors d’œuvre, crudités, canapés, nibbles, call them what you will, but whichever term you choose, all manner of foods, from anti-pasti, fruit, vegetables, nuts and snacks, look all the more appetising when served within this attractive platter.
For those interested in etymology, hors d’œuvre simply means 'outside the main work', in other words not the main meal. The word crudités derives from the Latin word crūdus which means "raw", which later became crūditās, meaning "undigested food", which evolved into the French word crudité, meaning "uncooked food". The word canapé origniates from the French word for sofa, as the garnish sits on top of the bread, cracker or blini - like a person on a sofa.
Whatever your preference, this platter is ideal for holding olives or sun dried tomatoes, or for dipping sauces for a plethora of cut or sliced raw vegetables, or less healthy dipping crisps and chips, the choice is endless...
