Dish It Up!

Admit it, washing dishes is just not much fun.  Reading about the history of dinner plates and their myriad of styles and colors is terrific fun, however!  And so is the new book entitled “Dish – 813 Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plates” written by Shax Riegler, the features editor at House Beautiful magazine.  In “Dish”, Shax explores centuries of dinner plates from olden days to the present and, with beautifully simple photography by Robert Bean, showcases rarified and humble examples.  They’re all pieces of gustatory history, items that we usually take for granted.  But you’ll never look at your plates in the same way after reading this entertaining volume.
