After, what felt like a very long, winter break, I opened my door to my private home once again, as we celebrated our seventh Feast – a proper Italiano Feast meets Danish design.
One thing all Italians have in common is their love of food, and especially their love for Italian food. I share that love. Italian food is really based upon home cooking, which made it a perfect match for our Feast. So while Mamma Mira created a sumptuous Italian dinner with antipasti, primo, secondo, contorni and dolce, I, Pappa Allan, set the mood around the table, making sure everyone’s glasses were always full – just how it should be.
As I really didn’t want to transform my apartment into a Italian restaurant with red and white check patterned tablecloths and decorations made of dry pasta and corks, I decided to just keep it simple. This time we worked with Kähler, Kay Bojesen and Holmegaard on tableware.
The Nordic minimalism of the Kaolin range from Kähler added a touch of exclusivity and design joy the table. The tableware is made of porcelain, which with its thin and delicate material complements the design of Karolin, which is indeed pure, light and simple – and just perfect for the colourful Italian food. The new Kaolin range matched perfectly with the two design heavyweights; the iconic Grand Prix cutlery in matte steel from Kay Bojesen and the award-winning Perfection glassware collection from Holmegaard.
The very alert reader will probably also have noticed that I have a new dining table, chairs and lamps. The even more alert reader will know that all this is by &tradtion – I will make a whole blog post very soon on this new setting.
Oh, I almost forgot, for those of you, who wants to try-out some of the recipe’s yourself, go to Mamma Mira, she will upload accordingly.
