I’m at the table with Pistoulet Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff,
a heartwarming collection dinnerware and serveware,
inspired by The Secrets of Pistoulet by Jana Kolpen.
The Secrets of Pistoulet, is an enchanted fable
filled with food, magic, and love. . .
Each piece of brightly decorated Pistoulet Dinnerware has freely rendered flowers and vines influenced by Jana Kolpen’s charming illustrations.
The sunny color palette of Southern France, decorates the dinnerware and rendering of Pistoulet, found on Le Grande Serving Platter.
“There is magic and mystery in the farmhouse known as Pistoulet. Here in southwestern France, Mademoiselle J. discovers the ancient recipes that transform the guests who come to Pistoulet weary and lacking in spirit.”
Stemless wine glasses and square dinner plates
are embellished with a fleur-de-lis.
The magical recipes, including those for ‘potages’, are designed to feed the soul, curing the maladies of the guests who pass through Pistoulet.
A 4 quart Soup Tureen with Ladle
is ideal for serving your potage or soup. . .
Or serving up sunflowers :)
I discovered some of
The Secrets of Pistoulet
with The Novel Bakers~
And prepared Potage of Passion,
despite the word of caution. . .
“Facial flush may occur due to extreme ecstasy. Guests often fall in love with the cook. Serve with discretion!”
A 5 quart Garden Salad Serving Bowl
is ready to serve weary guests~
And Celestial Croutons,
known to enhance the magical properties of any potage,
are best when prepared under the falling stars. . .
Day-old bread from the most soulful bakers
The most fragrant herbs~ Rosemary, thyme, and oregano from a sun-flooded patch
Aromatic garlic and the best olive oil
A Covered Bunny Serving Dish
adds some whimsy to the table.
And a field of sunflowers can be found
bordering the square salad plates.
Medium and Large Pedestal Cake Plates are stacked for a casual centerpiece of artichokes, a bottle of wine, a baguette, and some ingredients to add to a potage. . . garlic, basil, lavender, along with sunflowers and tomatoes, purchased from a farmer with a twinkle in his eye.
Le Petite Serving Platter
features a basket of lavender.
While a Small Pedestal Cake Plate
offers up tomatoes~
And Tea for One and a Honey Pot are
elevated on a Large Pedestal Cake Plate.
