The best kept secret of Mediterranean cooking for at least the last 100 years......
Nobody knows where this amazing little tool first came from, but there are examples of similar plates in North Africa, so it is likely it travelled North to Spain & then later to Southern France.
Another traditional variant of the plate is used in Japan to puree wasabi and ginger.
Plates with a very similar rough surface have been found in Roman archeological digs, so their origin is early indeed.
Our little plates are manufactured by an artisan pottery run by three brothers from the Anda Lucia region of Spain. The pottery is famous for its vibrantly coloured high quality cookware.
Many traditional processes are still used in the production process, and each plate is hand finished and decorated to make it truly unique.
