Just had to share this cute little piece of kitchenware my Son bought me for Christmas.
He got it at the Christmas Market in Manchester. It's a grating plate,
used for over a century in Spain, France, Italy......
Hand made and painted, I think it's beautiful - my boy couldn't wait to tell me all about it & what it could do!! It grates, grinds, zests & purees....
Gorgeous strong colours, reminiscent of pottery often found in Spain,
I did a google and you can find them in this country in loads of
different colours to suit every kitchen - a thing of beauty :-)
As you can see from the pictures it IS really effective, it retains the juice of the
garlic which is often lost when using a press.
