Set a Gorgeous Table with Sophie Conran for Portmeirion

Sophie Conran for Portmeirion is a collection that is designed to be multi-functional – the oven-to-tableware pieces look as beautiful on the table as they are practical in the kitchen. Measuring jugs morph into serving pieces whilst the roasting dishes can take centre stage on the table. Each piece of porcelain is able to withstand the demands of contemporary living, moving with ease from the dishwasher to the microwave, the freezer to the oven to the table.

Knife Skills: What is a bird's beak?

The most unusual member of the paring knife family is called a tourné knife, a curved peeler, or a bird’s beak. This knife, featuring a downward arching blade, is perfect for peeling and cutting round fruits and soft vegetables. Think kiwi, oranges, potatoes and beets. Cut the top off cherry tomatoes for stuffing. Does your knife block need one?
