For da pasta

There is a name for this style of china but I forget what it is. We used the dish to serve grated parmesan. The china spoon has long since broken but we use this one as a substitute. It is an apple atop a metal spoon we bought at the shop in Hirosaki Park in the north of Japan. Kitsch perhaps, but the smile is certainly cute.

  3. Hello Andrew:
    Doubtless if you were to spend time, and could be bothered, to scour ebay, then you would most likely come up with a replacement spoon. Meanwhile you have the jolly faced apple.

  5. Whatever Jayne, the dish was not expensive.

    Organic Windsmoke. I like that.

    JayLa, only so many years in a decade. I am not for scouring ebay.

    Damning with faint praise Fen, haha.

  6. A cabbage plate! I don't know what that type of china is called either, but I'd be calling it the cabbage dish from now on.

  7. I like the idea of cheese being served out of a cabbage plate with an apple spoon - all completely unrelated to each other.
