Look What Elaine Made

IMG_2815Elaine Corn, ceramacist, journalist, award-winning cookbook author, and friend, created something new just for La Vie Rustic – a rimmed platter. It’s perfect for serving something special, like the celery, mushroom and ricotta salata pictured here. It’s  shallow and its low rim sets a frame for the food. I’m going to pair mine with one of Elaine’s salt cellars putting young, tender French radishes and butter on the serving dish with the small dish filled with salt. In fact, I’m going to use 2 sets, one on each end of the table. At La Vie Rustic, we think everything, no matter how humble, deserves to be served with care and style. It’s more fun that way.IMG_2819

Salt Cellar Sets

La Vie Rustic has discovered that Elaine’s small bowls make perfect salt cellars, so we’ve decided to sell her latest batch in pairs for just that purpose. Of course, you can still use them for prep or pinch bowls, to put your rings in while you wash dishes, to hold seeds or  precisious spices. Like all her dishes, they are hand-shaped and crafted and no two are exactly alike. The set pictured below is Green Swirl.


Please specify color in the comment section of the order form.  (Set is two of the same color) : Green Swirl, White and Blue Speckle, White with Blue and Copper Strand, Blue Swirl, Dark Ochre, Pale Provencal Yellow, Pale Bluish.



Set of 2 Salt Cellar bowls………………………..$15.00
