I know that white dishes are very classic and classy and I accept that. I accept that for fancy-schmancy dinners, they may be beyond reproach.
For my everyday food they are just flat boring.
I wanted color. Deep color. And when I was deciding which color I wanted, I imagined how food would look on it. And I came to the conclusion that there is only one color that provides brilliant contrast with every food on earth:
And that is why my cheap blue plates from Target are still in use, after many years and many scratches, and why I have absolutely no desire to replace them.
Because they make food look pretty.
All food, no matter what color it is.
In fact, I have found only one food that doesn’t stand out strikingly against them.
