My friend received it from his employer as a Christmas gift. Originally, it contained four heavy white stoneware plates and mugs and stainless steel knives, forks and coffee spoons for four. It was very heavy and awkward to carry. As we used to stay in hotels, where we had no possibility of washing up the plates and mugs, we decided to replace those by their cardboard equivalents. We kept the cutlery though, as plastic knives don’t cut very well.
What else goes in? A colourful tablecloth, pepper and salt, a small bottle of olive oil, some Tupperware-like cardboard boxes, paper kitchen towel, a bottle of mineral water, a sharp kitchen knife, a corkscrew, a tin opener, a large bread knife, a small plastic or wooden cutting board, some plastic bags … and a little bar of soap. No food, though, as we like to buy it fresh at the local markets and shops.
And here it is!
