Divertimenti has installed a window display that coincidentally matches this week’s soaring temperatures. Bountiful green foliage provides the setting for pieces of Tropical Fruits tableware by Bordallo Pinheiro. The London cookshop and cookery school has launched the striking new collection ahead of its official UK launch date later this year.
Customers are showing their enthusiasm for the tropical display with comments including: “Welcome to the jungle,” and “I’ve just been to Kew Gardens – this is as good!”
Divertimenti owner Ben Philips explains: “Bordallo made a special effort to supply stock to us well ahead of the official launch of the range later in the year, following the success of our Taste of Portugal event pre lockdown which saw the Portuguese ambassador to the UK host an event with Divertimenti to celebrate Portuguese ceramics and food, with top Portuguese chef Leandro Carreira providing the lunch.”
The Tropical Collection includes Coconut, Passion Fruit, Avocado, Papaya, Sugar Apple, Pitaya and Kiwi shapes and designs.
