I came across the tasting trend while shopping at Crate and Barrel this weekend. I think anything that comes in miniature sizes are cute, so of course I love this idea. Here are some of C&B tasting ideas I like.
Tasting club book
Use porcelain spoons to serve bite sized food.
Footed soup bowls for soup tasting.
This tasting set is a great way to sample your favorite dipping oil.
the espresso-dessert cups are a fun way to serve hot drinks or a sampling of your favorite gelato.
I love pint size desserts.
Pair the Porcelain Condiment Spoon with a dessert cup for pudding or ice cream.
