Sophie Conran for Portmeirion

Sophie Conran Collection by Portmeirion

From a famous “food” family, Sophie Conran, daughter of Terence and food writer Caroline, cares deeply about the food her family eats. She operates the award-winning Sophie Conran Pies, has published cookbooks, and has now teamed up with Portmeirion to create a beautiful and practical collection of cookware, tableware and kitchenware that won the 2006 Elle Decoration Style Award for Best in Kitchens.

From sumptuous soups to a quick bowl of cereal, the Sophie Conran collection has been designed to work in any setting. The main tableware collection comes in white with accessorizing pieces available in two contemporary colours: biscuit and celadon. The range of porcelain tableware has been created with the “foodie” in mind — measuring jars that morph into serving pieces, mixing bowls that become salad bowls — the entire collection looks as good on the dining table as it does in the kitchen.
