The Gourmet Collection by Lorena Barrezueta is a clever twist on the idea of fine porcelain. By reintroducing the disposable tin food container as an object of high-end design, Lorena challenges our perception of quality and value. These cheeky little numbers are available in three different lines: Classic, Fresh, and Lush. I prefer the bold, modern colors of the Fresh line, but if you're going for sheer irony and/or perception smashing you might like the hand-gilded Classic series. Whatever your preference, you'll be sure to find a dish that suits your tastes: there are over 30 different styles, from Mac 'n' Cheese to Gyoza.
