I fell in love with Vie Gourmet coconut bowls when I saw them for the first time online.
I've recently been swapping made kitchen materials for natural alternatives and the coconut bowls were the perfect choice.
I initially thought to use them as eating bowls but since I've had them over the weeks, i've used them at an arts studio event at Hetley Road Studios, London W12 serving a meze of delights, each dish vibrant in colour held in a beautifully polished coconut shell, which surprisingly holds a lot of food!
It served a good purpose for this event. I had a big celebration coming up to host 'My Big Fat Vegan BBQ' celebrating 5 years of Carol's Organic Kitchen and could not wait to use my bowls again :D...on each occasion they've received great comments from all who've eaten from them.
There are natural spoons (as per photo) that compliment each bowl nicely. I also have a set of bamboo straws which are a much better substitute to plastic...I don't know if it's my imagination but I think my drinks actually taste better when drinking from these elegant and simple eco friendly straws....perhaps there's something to be said about opting for natural materials as everything looks and tastes better.
