Is there anything more typical from Cordoba than a flowerpot? This is what the restaurant Taberna Nº 10 might have thought when they designed their dessert in pot, and they counted on us to make it.
Maybe you were thinking of a real flowerpot to put or hang from your patio’s walls, and we can also make these as you can see with our exclusive Crisalida Flowerpot design.
But for this project, we designed a mini pot for a dessert, with the idea that it looked like the traditional red-clay flower pots that anyone can fin in every Patio from Córdoba. However, we had to use some glaze to make it waterproof and hygienic, as it was designed to be used as a plate for a dessert in a restaurant. Using a good glaze was the key to make a flower pot suitable for food.
Besides, the truth is that our stoneware material allows us to use high temperature glazes which avoid having pinholes at a 100% and make our pieces completely suitable for their use in restaurants. Furthermore, these glases are leadfree and are oven, microwave and dishwasher safe, which is fundamental in ceramics for restaurants as well.
The exclusiveness of this plat lies on the customization of the design by inscription of the restaurant’s logo on the glaze, made by hand with a small graver or “puntilla”, as it is known in the slang of the potters from La Rambla, Cordoba, Spain.
We advise everybody going to Cordoba to stop to have lunch in this “taberna” or restaurant, with a genuine Cordoban environment in which you can enjoy the Montilla-Moriles D.O. wine and, most of all, order the dessert in Torres Ferreras pot!
We hope you like the place, the wine, the dessert and our pot as much as we do… Enjoy!
