Tondini

My Tondini or Cardinal's Hat Plates


The perfect plate for the perfect dish

This is the unusual shape of the Tondino


It can be very plain
It can be very charming
It can be a bit odd
The form of the plate was introduced, in Italian Maiolica, at the beginning of the 16th century. The tondino is a plate with a broad rim and a deep center or cavetto.

The tondino reminds me of a child's plate. A plate you would give to a child so he would be eager to finish his meal to see the surprise at the bottom. I love serving desserts in them or beautiful and colorful salads. I like the idea of a very large plate with a small amount of very extravagant food. So Italian.
