Slate tableware continues to be THE fine dining trend. Now Slateware has been launched in response to demand for a superior, differentiated product for the hospitality industry.

Slateware is made from the finest Welsh slate that is 500 million years old - a pedigree that lends itself to the creation of tableware that is a feast for the eyes in itself.

Slateware represents the ultimate combination of form and function - beautiful, natural aesthetics and practicality for the busiest of professional kitchens. 

It is non-porous which allows food to be served directly onto it and for food to be kept hot or cold depending on the requirements. It is also oven and dishwasher friendly, incorporating grooved borders to capture every soupcon of sauce and “feet” to raise it from the table and ease handling. 

Four Slateware collections have been designed by celebrity chef Michael Caines and take pride of place on dining tables throughout his chain of Abode hotels as well as at Gidleigh Park where he earned his two Michelin stars. 

They are now also used at a number of other fine dining establishments including the new Waldorf Astoria Dubai and one of the world's most iconic hotels, London's Café Royal.

Executive chef at the Cafe Royal Andrew Turner is using key elements of the portfolio's Fine and Dressed collections which were designed respectively with elegant, sharp lines to complement the contemporary presentation of food and hand-dressed edges to reflect slate's natural texture. 

Andrew said: “Slateware is very practical and easy to maintain. Its clean lines allow simple presentations to shine with ease and create a strong statement on a fine linen tablecloth. I especially like to use them when presenting canapés, Café Royal cakes and restaurant dishes with rich colours.”

As well as the Fine and Dressed collections, Slateware by Welsh Slate also includes the Honed collection which highlights the natural veinings exclusive to Slateware and has been hand-polished to give an ultra-smooth, luxurious feel. 

More recent additions to the Slateware portfolio include the Occasion collection for professional food service establishments and a completely Bespoke collection.
