On the 25th December 1662, Samuel Pepys described his Christmas feast as a “mess of brave plum pudding” but lamented that he’d had to send “for a mince pie abroad, my wife not being well enough to make any herself yet”. Once the oven-warm current-filled parcels of comfort and joy are fresh from the oven, present them on our gun-metal Kestle Zinc Plate, where they somehow look even more seductive than usual. Christmas on a plate.
In the spirit of the minimal yet magical, we present our stripped-back, nature-inspired take on Christmas. Christmas marks a time of embrace and capitulation, it is a moment to fill the house with the scent of roasting chestnuts and to gather up those who matter most and hold close, above all, our precious kin.
But amid the apposite overindulgence – the profusion of presents and the tables groaning with seductive giant-sized feasts, we bring the enchantment gently to earth with our quiet celebration of the home-spun, the handmade and that which nature provides.
