For those of you who don’t follow the wonderful @WeWantPlates on Twitter, it features (as the name suggests) photos of weird and, sometimes frankly disgusting, ways of serving food that leave you seriously wishing for a plate. Everything from the almost standard roof slates and mini frying baskets, to various shoes, hats, toys, etc. Always good for a laugh (or sometimes a retch).
Anyhow, at the wine awards this week we were served a few snacks afterwards and suddenly THIS thing came around. I don’t know what it’s supposed to be. A jamón volcano with bread stick lava spewing out the top? It didn’t do anything to harm the wonderful jamón attached to it, but it also didn’t do anything to inhance it. So you know… why not just use a plate?
