SLATEWARE DOES THE GRAND TOUR
 
Slateware from Welsh Slate is proving popular worldwide.

From the wilds of Wales to some of the most exotic countries on the planet, Slateware continues to make its mark on some of the finest dining tables in the world.


But back in the Welsh borders, it is also making its mark on chefs in the making, with students at the Brompton Cookery School run by award-winning chef Marcus Bean.

The school in Shropshire has taken delivery of main plates from Slateware's Fine collection, which is hand split with a fine edge finish, for students to plate up their food. Marcus also uses them himself for “Demo and dine” evenings and private dinner parties.

He said: “I love presenting food on Slateware. The deep colour from the slate allows the food to stand out and be noticed. It really gives that wow factor that complements the dishes I create. And I love the fact that we serve local seasonal food on locally made Welsh slate.”

Slateware is also being used on the dining tables of Dubai's new Waldorf Astoria hotel and Toko restaurant and at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel, The Berkeley London hotel and Firmdale hotels in London. 

London's iconic Café Royal is one of Slateware's greatest enthusiasts, using key elements from the Dressed and Fine collections. These include starter and main course plates, placemats and charcuterie boards from the Dressed collection, and starter, main course, appetiser, ice cream and small and large cheese plates from the Fine collection.

Bespoke Slateware butter plates and cake stands are also being used at the New York Palace and Sofitel London St James hotels respectively.
