A Stylish Kitchen believes serving bowls are essential components to any well stocked kitchen, particularly those that have an eye towards style. Serving bowls are essential for practical reasons of course – you have to put the food in something to serve your family or guests but to us they’re more than just a vessel to serve from.
Thesebowls become a component of style. Your serving pieces set the tone for the table. Casual and rustic or sleek and formal – these pieces carry out your theme and can be dramatic statements all on their own. Not to mention that they’re practical uses are for more than just food on the table. Use a large bowl to keep fruit out on the counter and in easy reach for snacking. Place a small serving bowl on a coffee table and fill with potpourri to freshen your home.
When considering which serving bowls to buy, you’ll want to think about the types of food you normally serve. Big pasta dishes will call for a large bowl. Saladsand breads work wonderfully in large wood dishes. You’ll want multiple sizes and bowls made out of different materials. As lovely as a wood bowl is it wouldn’t stay that way if you serve spaghetti and meatballs out of it!
