Imagine sugared almonds, mounds of olives, piquillo peppers and other tempting tapas filling the compartments of this beautiful, handcrafted appetizer tray. Serve traditional Spanish fare in a charming and functional piece of culinary art. A simple, yet striking design makes it an attractive addition to a party spread or a lovely kitchen decoration propped up in a cozy corner.
Each appetizer tray is crafted by hand so they differ just slightly from the last, offering small unique twists in color and design. The dishes are also signed by the artist and can be displayed as decorative pieces in the kitchen when not in use.
In our search for the most traditional and remarkable ceramics of Spain, we fell in love at first sight with both the town and makers of these unique dishes. Created in El Puente del Arzobispo within the Province of Toledo — which has been the heart of handmade ceramics for over a thousand years — we wound through beautiful, narrow streets lined with talented ceramic makers and artists. Their commitment to the preservation of quality, beauty and customary Spanish cooking tools is admirable, and the artisan who makes these particular dishes is one of our favorites. La Tienda has enjoyed working with her for over 10 years and our family visits her often to catch up and discuss possible new creations.
We recommend that you hand wash your Ceramical appetizer tray. Over time, the glaze may become susceptible to cracking with dishwasher use.
