I really have a thing for plates. I love going to restaurants and seeing what kind of plates they use. Some of my favorite plates are made by a German company called Hering. Mostly all of there plates have the same type of design on them, they are all made from porcelain, and are all very expensive. I have had the plasure of plating on hering plates/bowls at both per se and L20. At L20 we use about 85% hering plates, which makes me very happy. In my opinion picking the right plate for your dessert is a major decision that takes time.
