Grate Plate

Two foods I love are garlic and ginger. That's really fortunate because they're also very healthy foods. Many of my favorite recipes call for grated ginger. As much as I love eating them I don't really enjoy grating the ginger. That is I didn't enjoy grating the ginger until I made my first grate plate. Now I just peel the ginger root and rub it on the center of the great plate and the ginger is grated without scratching my knuckles. I love that.

The other thing that I love is making garlic in oil on the grate plate. For this I peel the garlic and then rub the cloves over the rough area in the center of the great plate then I add some olive oil. This makes a delicious and healthy dipping sauce. You can serve this right on the grate plate with a loaf of crusty bread. Add a bottle of your favorite wine and invite a few good friends over, it's good times.

Ready to Grate Some Garlic

The secret behind the grate plate is that the design in the center of the plate is rough enough to grate the garlic or the ginger and even some cheeses but you're not going to cut your hands on it like you would the traditional metal cheese grater. You should try one you'll find out why I really like this piece of pottery.

  1. I had never seen or heard of these until a couple of years ago, it's a pretty cool idea.

    1. Thanks Meesh, I hadn't either and I really didn't know how well it would work so I made a prototype and loved it. It's one of my better selling items, this and the French Butter Keepers.

  2. That's a great, grate plate, sorry couldn't resist. Ha.

    Don't plant that brugmansia or angel trumpet where your dogs will eat it because all parts are poisonous.

    1. I've used that line a few times myself.

      Thanks for the reminder. I sure don't want them eating it, and they would.

    1. Thanks Gary, this is one of my favorite glazes. I have a berry bowl that matches this plate, they always look good together on the table.

  5. Lori, you have this great way of describing what to do with a functional piece of pottery that makes me want to buy it. When you talked about your casseroles, I wanted to cook a casserole recipe and now all I want to do is eat bread with olive oil and grated garlic! I love the suggestions you make for your pieces, very enticing:)

    1. Thanks Tracey, I guess that comes from telling people at shows what each piece can be used for.
