Nevertheless, the vessels used to hold food are still evolving. In order to make food more compelling, and to add speciality to eating, high-end restaurants are offering experimental styles of dishes.
Even if you do not go to fine restaurants, unique types of bowls and utensils designed for specific dishes are easily found around us and it is interesting to see how they are developed in different ways to adopt to its own food culture.
We often say, the form follows function. If the form follows the function, does the form of the plate follow the function- let’s say- serving? Then does shape follow food or the other way around?
