Since the Irish lockdown began, we have all had to embrace a new sense of normal – and at this stage it is absolutely crucial that we continue to play our part and stay as safe as possible. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t miss our other normal pre-lockdown socialising, like meeting up with friends, heading to the cinema or dining out in style.
‘These little luxuries are sure to make a difference to help you serve up a storm.’ 
If you are like myself, you’ll miss the Friday night buzz of a trip to your favourite restaurant – the friendly ambiance, the smell of sizzling food and the top-notch presentation of your dish – all of these things can make a massive difference to the dining experience. That is why we are bringing the ‘Restaurant Feel’ in to your home to help to reinvigorate your mealtimes.
Adding just a couple of our top picks to your kitchenware collection can make a massive difference, and bring that ‘dining out’ feel to your at-home dinner experience. These little luxuries are sure to make a difference to help you serve up a storm.

Denby James Martin Mug & Plate Set

Ideal to serve either coffee and cake in the evening, or soup and a sandwich for a wholesome lunch… this stylish set from Denby will add a touch of class to your serving style. Whether you’re enjoying an al fresco lunch, or preparing for when you can have guests over next, this little set is sure to impress.

Kitchen Craft Mini Deluxe Stainless Steel Square Fry Basket

A fantastic way to present individual portions of chips / onion rings / wedges, these fry baskets from Kitchen Craft really bring that restaurant feel home and are a fun talking point for any kitchen. Also perfect to create some baskets of nibbles to share at your next ‘at home date night’ or for dining al fresco in the garden.

Stellar Beech Wood Pizza Serving Board

Make your pizza nights’ feel a lot more fun with this sustainably sourced beechwood board from Stellar.  At 30cm it will easily fit a 12′ pizza, and can also be used to serve bread, cheese or any other platter foods. This board can also be used as a pizza peel, to easily transfer your pizza in and out of the oven. Finally, when you’re finished with your pizza board, use the hanging loop for easy and discreet storage.

And what would a make-believe meal out be like, without a little sip of your favourite beverage? Nothing says luxury like a beautiful wide-brim Gin glass, so you can add plenty of ice and fruit for the perfect refreshing, after-dinner treat – whether you enjoy it at the table or take it outdoors to soak up some sunshine… is up to you!
