This just in: Ceramics that showcase the most thoughtful garden-to-table dishes.
We’re big fans of just about everything at Olmsted, the new Brooklyn restaurant whose brilliant backyard micro-farm we’re featuring over on Gardenista today. So when we spied on Instagram that chef Greg Baxtrom hand-selects pieces from Turkish-based ceramics company Santimetre to showcase his ultra-fresh, sustainable dishes, we admired the restaurant even more.
Founded by Tulya Madra, a former furniture and interior designer, Santimetre has a porcelain manufacturing studio in Ayvalık, a historic town on the Aegean Sea, and recently opened a retail shop on Thompson Street in New York City. Here, a look at some of our favorites from Santimetre’s line—best paired with straight-from-the-garden recipes. Santimetre takes custom orders; all information is available here.
