We live in a world of photos and short videos and everyone is taking snaps of what they are eating, or what they've just cooked. So as a food blogger, food presentation is a big thing to me because we eat with our eyes first.
Presenting food always starts with choosing the correct plate or bowl for the job, that’s why my go-to choice has to be Denby. With over 200 years of pottery craftsmanship using the strongest Derbyshire clay, it’s fair to say that they know what they are doing. They source all their super strong Derbyshire clay from just behind their factory, as they have been doing for centuries; and with time-honoured skills and traditions, they turn it by hand into beautiful stoneware.
Four generations back, artists in Derbyshire became pottery pioneers when they used their skills to turn strong clay into the famous Denby collections we love today. Thanks to those pioneers, Denby now have over 5000 glazes and a growing range of distinctive colours, shapes and patterns - all hand finished, so no piece is ever exactly the same. In fact, only after being passed through 25 pairs of hands, is each piece then awarded the Denby seal of approval. When you hold a Denby piece in your hand you are holding a piece of history. That is why chef’s like James Martin and stores like John Lewis are proud to have their name associated with Denby.
Whatever the occasion, Denby have the collection you need. From simple everyday bowls for your breakfast cereal, soup or pasta dishes, to impressive entertaining pieces such as platters, serving bowls and nibble bowls. In everything Denby create, beautiful design remains at the heart.
I’m currently using their New Studio Blue range which I absolutely love. It’s an informal collection of bowls, plates and platters as well as mugs; ranging in four different shades of blue, each one unique and a beautiful piece of art. I like the white pieces with the blue speckles especially.
But Denby doesn’t just stop at dinnerware. They also offer a full range of cutlery, placemats, glassware to cookware including pots, pans, utensils and even a stunning selection of pie dishes, oven and ramekin dishes. I believe it’s safe to say, whatever you are looking for; cooking, drinking or eating wise, Denby have you coved for every occasion possible.
No wonder they have been going from strength to strength since 1809.
