Front of the House

The plate as the first ingredient.

Most chefs view the plate as their “canvas”—a backdrop that allows the ingredients to take the spotlight. But when it comes to the overall presentation of a dish, does the plate really fade into the background? The answer, of course, is no. When diners sit down, they’re looking at the ingredients and the plate, taking in the filled and empty space as one complete work of culinary art. Front of the House plates are designed with this idea—and some lofty aspirations of their own—in mind.

And if chefs are like artists, it’s also true that chefs can be … as particular as artists. But with 10 complete porcelain collections and over 200 matching accessories, FOH has a plate to fit every plating style. In the mise en place of any successful kitchen, the clean lines and modern designs of FOH plates make for the ideal first ingredient. The bonus? Unlike actual canvases, FOH plates are very much reusable, meaning they can support a culinary Mona Lisa one day and a modernist deconstruction the next.
