Doesn't food just look better on fiestaware? I believe that it does. I find that I choose which plate I am using based on what I am eating. Who wouldn't? Right? I mean you wouldn't want to eat homemade mac and cheese on a tangerine plate? Or scrambled eggs on sunflower? No, you must choose your dishes according to the food that is going on them. I have to admit that I am not a fan of blue normally, however, the cobalt fiestaware is striking, and the food looks so appetizing on it! Try it, you'll see what I mean...........Who would have thought that a pb&j would look great on a scarlett plate? or a meat and cheese with lettuce would look so yummy on lemongrass? Superb!
