Irish-owned Gourmet Food Parlour restaurant and catering group have launched a range of crockery aimed at bringing a hint of the restaurants into people’s homes. Designed by co-founder and managing director Lorraine Heskin, the set is inspired by original drawings around the establishment of the restaurant chain 13 years ago.
The pieces are infused with soft tones and placed on the restaurant’s signature pale blue background, along with quirky nods to house style. The collection includes mugs, ½ pint jug, two cup teapot, four cup teapot, butter dish, cake stand, sugar bowl and two-tier cake stands. The hand-painted crockery was made by Shannonbridge Pottery family business in Co Offaly.
The crockery can be bought online or in any of the restaurants.
The collection prices range from €10 for a mug to the €30 cakestand. GFP locations include Dun Laoghaire, Swords, Skerries, Malahide, Santry and Salthill. They are the nutritional partners with Dublin GAA County Board, catering for players’ diets. GFP also work with DCU, FAI, IRFU, Swim Ireland, Slane Castle, Loughcrew Estate and Special Olympics.
GFP also works with Food Flicker online nutrition to create and deliver meals as part of their menus. They are one of the largest sports catering companies in Ireland and have recently become the title sponsor of the HEC Ladies Football Championship.
