One Size Fits All. If cost and space limit your collection of stemware, then Reidel (makers of the glasses most popular with sommeliers) suggest buying an all-purpose wine glass similar to the one designed by the California Wine Institute - it's five and a half inches tall with a one and three quarter inch stem. It's clear and tulip shaped, with an 8oz capacity, and is suitable for all wine varieties. The Chianti Classico from Riedel is one example.
While few of us in these busy times have sufficient inclination to bring out the best damask tablecloth for everyday dining, and reports indicate the few families now sit around the dining table more than once a week. Executive apartments always include a smart dining area in their plans and young couples would expect to include a designated area for dining. Many homes nowadays often only have space for a dining room segment of their living room or an eating area in their kitchen. If this is the case, it is still possible for ideas to be applied and, rather than focusing so much on the fine dining experience, they can incorporate pine bench seating and a pine table or, if money is particularly tight, one of the many black ash dining suite products.
The new essentials. 'We don't need complete dinner services any more,' says Wedgwood design and creative consultant Francesca Amfitheatrof. 'Attitudes have changed and we can be adventurous with a less formal mix-and-match approach.' Instead, it's all about customising your crockery, so compile your ultimate wish list before investing in some good-quality basics. Space and storage limitations make today's kitchen essentials work harder and, as a result, you're more likely to need flexible items and dishes that can double up. Don't waste your funds on cups and saucers just because tradition dictates if you know you won't use them. On the other hand, if you're a coffee lover, proper espresso cups will be a good investment if they make your morning shot that much more enjoyable. Above all, it's essential to think about your particular needs and cooking style when choosing crockery.
