pancake & more food face plates


by now I am sure you know I like plates. Actually I like whole sets of dishes. I've had many and gotten rid of many and I guess I am now receiving them as gifts. Doesn't get any better than that.

In his quest to create the perfect plate for devouring pancakes, designer Jon Wye broke down the elements of what makes a pillowy stack so comforting. After a lifelong love affair with breakfast, Wye pin-pointed the crux of satisfaction: syrup. Designed with a raised edge that gently slopes the plate toward the diner and an ingenious reservoir for pooling loose syrup, this plate was made for slicing, dipping and delighting in each bite of pancake goodness. But the best part? This plate enhances any saucy dish down to the last drop. Made in Arizona. Sold as a set of 2 plates.



And I already posted about the cute Food Face plate. Here you see it first as a fruit plate and second as Christmas dinner. It is entirely possible that Grandma has even more fun with this than little Jackson does.
