The Laguiole Cutlery Set arrives in this beautiful wooden box, which sorts each cutlery type into separate compartments. The set itself contains the usual utensils of knives, forks and spoons in these amazing colours. I love vibrant looking things and these fit the bill. They work well with simple white or black plates where they are then the focus, or can be paired with patterned plates to give some contrast. Any which way, they are so beautiful. I love the little bee insignia.
I've used all the cutlery to eat a variety of food. Obviously the forks and spoons work as expected. They feel really great in the hand, with a balanced weight to them and I just can't stop staring at the coloured handles, so pretty. However, it's the knives that I'm most in love with. Firstly, I love the shape of the blades, but most importantly, they are sharp. I sliced through my lamb cutlets so easily and it makes eating more enjoyable. I hate having to struggle to cut food as all the grunt I need to exert distracts me from the meal. These knives not only work functionally but in the most fashionable way too.
The cutlery set is not the cheapest, but I can't recommend them highly enough. Get this set and they can sit pride of place amongst all your cutlery. And no, don't shelve them away waiting to be used when guests come over. Use them all the time. You deserve to use the good stuff and feel good. I never understand when people save the best things for their guests. I say, use the best things yourself as you paid good money for it and deserve to feel the luxury and joy the items provide. That's my philosophy anyway. Everyone is different. So I will keep using my Laguiole Cutlery Set and should you come over with a cake to share with me, you can use the cutlery set too.
Thanks to Kitchenware Direct for giving me the Laguiole Cutlery Set. I am totally in love with it.
