Nice fruit bowl Grasse
All in simplicity!
This 6 setting dinner set has the traditional round shape of Provençal tableware.
It’s made of resistant glazed earthenware for everyday use. They are so pretty that you will almost forget their practicality: the material is dishwasher and oven safe, even microwave safe. You can therefore reheat your food directly in the plate without going back through the dish or the pan.
These rustic dinner plates for entertaining on the terrace or in the summer lounge will make a very beautiful table in the ‘country chic’ style.
This plate results from the work of a potter and a decorator.
The piece was shaped in a mixture of white clay and kaolin and then fired for the first time in an oven at 980 ° C. After cooling, the decoration is applied with a brush and then the plate is dipped in a neutral glaze which gives the enamel appearance after a second “high heat” firing.
All these steps require a lot of handling and are done exclusively by hand, in the old fashioned way. It takes a lot of patience because drying is subject to variations in the weather. And a good mastery also to manage to reproduce each pattern in a regular way and without burrs. This is the charm of craftsmanship.
With a very light eggshell base, and small, somewhat naive red flowers, this service has a very Provencal style. It is luminous, like the midday sun, and the mixture of poppy red and soft green, complementary colors, brings a rustic touch.

1 - Before first use (culinary terracotta only)
Before using your culinary pottery for the first time, we recommend to soak your pottery and its cover overnight in cold water and then to air dry thoroughly.
Then rub it with a clove of garlic and let stand for at least 5 hours.
Before use, clean it by hand, preferably with liquid Marseille soap or a diluted commercial detergent. Once dry, your terracotta pottery is ready to use.
2 - To avoid thermal shocks
Glazed terracotta and earthenware, like any ceramic, are materials sensitive to thermal shocks and can be damaged irreparably. Here are some tips to avoid breakage.
- 1st tip: Not empty!
Never heat or reheat a pottery utensil when it is empty. We recommend placing preparations or food inside, or at least a glass of water, before placing your dishes in the oven or on a cooking source.
- 2nd tip: Cold start
Whatever the heat source, you should always start your cooking in a cold oven, or on a small fire with a heat diffuser. Covered pottery retains heat and loses very little energy. You can heat up slowly. The earth gently cooks the stewed preparations, giving them back their water. These remain soft and tasty. There is no point in raising the temperature sharply. If you adhere to this principle, you can simmer unattended for a long time. Finally, do not use your pottery for quick cooking (roasting meat, for example). It is not appropriate. Prefer utensils made of iron, cast iron, etc, instead.
- 3rd tip: Do not put on a cold surface after cooking
Provide a tea towel, a cork or wooden trivet, and avoid placing it directly on a work surface. The temperature difference between very hot terracotta and a cold surface could create a shock causing cracking. Likewise, never pass from the oven to the refrigerator or vice versa. It would be fatal for your ceramic. Also, do not leave your terracotta or earthenware dish next to a cooking point. The proximity of a very hot temperature can crack the ceramic.
3 - How to clean your pottery
Even if you are using the dishwasher, you must handle your dishes avoiding any shocks. For hand cleaning, avoid metal pads and abrasive sponges. It is better to use natural detergents, such as Marseille soap products. Always rinse thoroughly, especially for utensils that have an unglazed part. You must allow your ceramic to dry completely before storing it. Place the lid separately, or staggered to prevent airtight closing while your dishes are resting. This will help prevent mold, as the terracotta retains moisture.
Thanks to these recommendations, you will rediscover the true flavor of your recipe in this natural earth, and the pleasure of sharing it at dinner.
