As Ramadan draws to a close, many families are preparing to host a massive feast. Which got me thinking…
I love people who cook for dinner gatherings – they are the best people on earth. What could be more selfless than spending hours of hassle trying to cook, clean and serve your guests… for free!?
If you’re one of these people, I salute you. It’s something I could never do, because everyone would balk at my unpalatable “chef’s creations”.
BUT I know there’s one element you need, that is mission critical for a successful dinner gathering.
Hint: It literally involves the chemical elements of the periodic table.
(50% carbon, 42% oxygen, 6% hydrogen, 1% nitrogen, 1% trace elements)
More specifically, wooden tableware. You need it for two very simple reasons – wood is functional, and it is incredibly beautiful.
1. Why Wood Is Functional
Wood is functional because it is a much poorer conductor of heat than metal or ceramic. The last thing you want while hosting a dinner is having people scald themselves with searing metal surfaces. It would be an instant dampener to any dinner gathering.
Some folks also dislike wooden tableware as it’s surface is naturally rough and hard to clean. However, IUIGA’s wooden tableware is pre-polished and coated with olive oil, rendering it ten times smoother than any other wooden surface.
2.Why Wood Is Beautiful
A few weeks ago, I dined in a hustling and bustling restaurant in town.
I have no recollection of what I ate… but I remember I had a great time admiring the wooden serving board upon which the food was served.
Strange how these little things make a world of difference.
The scientific explanation is that wood is the perfect serving vessel for many kinds of food, because its natural backdrop complements and enhances food colours, compared to the dull and lifeless appearance of metal and ceramic.
But I don’t think you need a scientific explanation to resonate with the natural allure of wood – more so from IUIGA products, which are made of top-grade Jujube wood. There is just something soothing and satisfying about eating and drinking from premium woodware…
Maybe woodware simply reminds us of the simplicity, minimalism and asceticism of the past, that is now so elusive in the modern world.
Whatever it is, now you have enough reasons to give your tableware an overhaul!
