Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Middle Eastern Serving Dishes

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: Lawrence of Arabia
Cuisine: Middle Eastern

Middle Eastern food always makes me think of exotic serving wares. Copper samovars, pieces made of polished brass, silver filigree, and porcelain with arabesque and mosaic patterns. I have a few such pieces in my collection, albeit none nearly so grand. And this menu may even inspire me to go in search of a few more. Browsing the local thrift shops has always been one of my favorite ways to while away an afternoon.
