Square or rectangular - Slateware has the Main Plate for you.

Keen cooks know it isn't just what you serve but how you serve it that counts, and nothing is guaranteed to make the eyes as well as the mouth water more than natural slate tableware, especially when each piece is absolutely unique.

Slateware by Welsh Slate is a portfolio of slate tableware designed by two Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines using 500 million-year-old slate from the company's Penrhyn quarry which produces natural green veining which makes each item unique.

One of its flagship products, the Main Plate from the elegantly fine-lined Fine collection, which is hand split with a fine edge finish, is also ultimately flexible, being available in square or rectangular formats* to suit any cuisine or dining occasion. FIVE OF THESE MAIN PLATES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PHOTOSHOOTS ON A FIRST-COME FIRST-SERVED BASIS!

Slateware has taken presenting and serving food to the next level with a total of four collections which enable keen cooks to choose the look they like best, from the hand-dressed edges of Dressed, through the highlighted and hand-polished natural veinings of Honed, to the stylish party platters for Occasions at home.

As well as being beautiful, Slateware is also practical, being 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 slate “feet”.

Slateware is also used by professional chefs at a number of fine dining establishments including London's Café Royal and the five-star London hotels The Berkeley and Sofitel London St James, the Firmdale Group Hotels in London, the New York Palace Hotel, Wynn Las Vegas hotel, and the Waldorf Astoria and award-winning Toko restaurant in Dubai.

Michael Caines says of Slateware: “I love presenting food on Welsh slate. The drama of the food set against a surface infused with history, texture and delicate hues deepens the adventure.”
*£24 and £22 respectively.
