Welcome to Friday, colour-lovers 🍋📒💛☀️⭐️
I was recently told that these striking @royalcrownderby plates (top right) were a private commission for a mega-sized yacht and cost hundreds of pounds each (here’s hoping for calm seas, especially while they’re clearing the gargantuan table: “Sorry, but I just dropped five. They weren’t expensive…were they?……”) Studies show that yellow is an ideal colour to serve food on to encourage diners to tuck in (red is even better: think how often you see red and yellow in fast food marketing 🍟). Conversely, if you want to lose weight, ditch the yellow and go for blue (strangely, the same colour I once told you helps dementia patients to eat more). Have you ever been encouraged to (or, indeed, been put off by) eat something because of the crockery colour? Beige food on a beige plate, perchance? Or is that just me?…🤔😁I’d love to know. Catch you later.
