Pretty fruit bowl

This salad bowl or fruit bowl as you like is a perfect model for everyday use. Its round and deep shape only needs a small space in the cupboards with yet a good capacity. The small model, about 16 cm in diameter and the large one of 21, stack up for even less space. The small size can serve as large individual salad bowls.

Here we find the practical spirit of traditional Provencal tableware: pot-bellied and simple. Only the decor brings the fantasy and the colors that change everyday life.

Also, it goes in the oven and in the dishwasher. No excuse for not buying this bowl!

Rare!

Today, the artisanal pottery of Vallauris is rather on the way out, and that's a shame!

With Fabio, our partner potter, we do our best to perpetuate this ancestral know-how. This white earthenware is made in the famous pottery town and each piece is signed on the back.

The decorations are handmade either with a brush or with a ‘pear’ depending on the needs. Two firing at 1000 ° C are necessary to obtain the ceramic in its shape and its final decoration. Handmade beauty takes time.

Porquerolles set

If you like blue and white, this table set is for you.

It's feminine, romantic, pastel, and bright. Dress your table with a white or light blue tablecloth, and arrange your Porquerolles plates: elegance does not necessarily need big brands ... Just skillful hands and taste. Find all the items of the Porquerolles crockery here.

Manual


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.
