Very unique to see that a chef creates his own plates … how exactly does this work?
Through an old employee I was brought into contact with Cindy who makes ceramics.
Her studio is in Beesel and since we like to get everything up close, the first interest was quickly aroused!
When I have an idea about a new plate or a new dish, I go to Cindy. Together we look at what the possibilities are and then she makes a first sample directly on the pottery wheel. Based on that, we determine how the plate will ultimately look like. Color, shape etc. Cindy then uses her craftsmanship to make our design into a useful easy to work with plate.
Do you know any other chefs who do this? Why is this important to you?
No idea if other chefs do that. A plate is an extension of the dish for me and therefore contributes to the fact that a dish can become even more special!
Super handmade where no two plates will be the same.
