Here are the gift
"Gray Pearl" crockery set from Villeroy & Boch
We have spent some time
looking for a dinner set we like. We've found something really nice,
and it is available all around the world. There are many different
items to choose from, so we've put them on a separate site here. We are looking forward to having you
over for dinner for some home made Yorkshire Pudding and Sauerkraut,
served on some really nice china...
Robert Welch cutlery set
We found this cutlery set at
David Jones in Australia. It should also be available in the UK. Please
find more information on the UK website of Robert Welch, or go
directly to the Radford
cutlery set. You can even buy online and let them deliver it to
where-ever you want - even Lovestone Castle...
Here is a list of items we really like (if not crossed
out, they are still available):

can locate the closest
shop near you (under "retailers" -> "shops").

A really nice Aussie hardwood chopping
You'll find boards like this one
in Australiana shops all over the fifth continent. We found the picture
on the website of ecofurniture
from - where else - Byron Bay. They've got nice boards which are not
quite straight cut, but a bit different.
"Basic" pots and pans
In order to cook the Yorkshire
Pudding and Sauerkraut mentioned above, we had a look around for a set
of pots and pans. The "Basic" set of pots from Silit looks very good to
us, and is also available in Australia (e.g. David Jones), the UK, and
Germany. Unfortunately, the Silit
website is only in German (on the website, go to "Produkte" ->
"Kochgeschirrserien" -> "Basic").
- "Basic" low casserole
(Bratentopf 16 cm)
low casserole (Bratentopf 20 cm)
low casserole (Bratentopf
vegetable pot (Gemüsetopf
- frying pan from the "Elements"
range (20 cm)
- frying pan from the "Elements" range (28 cm)
We've got no idea where to find a
champagne bucket. Maybe you know where? And if someone would like to
surprise us with some sparkling, we actually value the Aussie stuff
quite highly, even though EU geographic indicator rules mean you can't
call it Champagne.......
This is the 1.0 litre "Juwel"
thermos-jug. You'll find a store near you on Alfi's website, or else there
internet-order shop under this
address - unfortunately only in German.
For cold winter nights, we'll
a fondue set. We really like this one from Silit , however, there are a number of
fab fondue sets out there...
picture of the Aussie countryside, so we're always reminded of how
great it is...
This prezzie is already off the
list - as a matter of fact, it is already hanging over our bed and we
love it - thanks Claire and Maf!!!
