Bread baskets can make a difference on the tabletop!

For a long time bread tableware was considered to be one of the most boring items in tabletop setting, due to lack of creativity in their design. Nevertheless, as chefs and restaurant managers are frantically searching for new ways to innovate and enrich guest’s dining experience, bread baskets have  recently turned into a small dining phenomenon on their own!

Many restaurants nowadays offer bread baskets with chef’s signature selection of in-house baked breads accompanied with unique spreads and dipping sauces as a  pre-starter of the meal.

Glass bread dishes, bread serving bowls and breadstick holders are designed in innovative shapes and colors to reflect the style of the restaurant decor and provide guests with tasty anticipation of the main courses.
