Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Designing a Table Setting

Last month on my shopping trip to San Francisco's Japantown, I bought lots of Asian-style serving dishes. Although most of them are distinctively Japanese, many of them are quite rustic and can be used for cuisines from other cultures as well. Among my purchases was a beautiful homespun-style table runner in a glyphic pattern with matching placemats, napkins and chopsticks. I'm hoping the set will lend itself to the aesthetics of the Korean food.
