  • Nigella's Black Dinner Plates

    On Nigella's videos she dishes up several of her recipes in some black dinner plates with a raised lip. The dishes also feature in the picture of Nigella from her Kitchen cook book where she is eating Slut's Spaghetti. Where did she get these plates?

    From the nigella team:

    The plates featured in the photograph in Kitchen (p189) are black Colombian clayware plates. Nigella bought hers from the Conran Shop however they no longer feature on that particular website, but La Chamba and Tierra Negra supply similar plates and these can be purchased on-line (for examples see links below). In the US some of the La Chamba items can be bought on-line.
