“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf
Just in time for the upcoming holiday feasts, we are thrilled to launch our new custom monogrammed Weave Covered Tureen.
Tureens are a wonderfully useful serving piece that actually have multiple uses that some may not even consider. Because we love the idea of creating lasting memories by gathering around the table, this is a piece is especially special because it embodies those ideals.
The Tureen originated in France where historically and traditionally were used for soups or broths being the reason that it has two handles on each side so as one does not burn themselves while passing the piece around the table. But today they can be used for multiple dishes as well as even table or home décor. Below are some other surprising uses for your Tureen to consider:
1. Dips for appetizers or dessert bowls - because they are large enough to use for serving, tureens make a wonderful serving bowl for dips such a artichoke or spinach, or even a dessert dip like my favorite cake batter that is simply delicious atop fresh fruit or pound cake.
2. Soups & stews - though soup is the traditional favorite, tureens can also be used for thick stews or even your favorite family chili recipe. The handles and lid make it perfect for serving to maintain the warm temperature even while sitting on the table.
3. Casseroles & Vegetables - perfect for those family gatherings, the tureen is a fantastic piece for all of those large meal side additions like green bean casserole, sweet or mashed potatoes, cream corn & spinach, or even hot spiced apples. A truly wonderful attribute of our pieces that maybe not known is that they are heat safe. Meaning they are perfect for all of these type dishes considering you use them in your oven or microwave.
4. Home & Table Decor - a lesser known use for the Tureen that is gaining some traction is using them as cache pots to display a beautiful bouquet of flowers for the center of your table or even displaying them on your mantle or bookshelf. Other ideas range from also incorporating fresh fruit, or using as a holder for cloth napkins, or a mini ice bucket for beverages. Another rather interesting idea because it has an accompanying lid is to use the tureen as a container to proof dough before baking.
Create a custom monogrammed Weave Tureen for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
