BOXTEXT: Future trends
Paul Goodfellow of Continental Chef Supplies has been crystal ball-gazing and this is what he saw:
More shaped and multi-functional plates coming on to the market
Greater use of miniatures and accessories such as canapŽ spoons
Designers increasingly putting their names to tableware
White plain plates are here to stay, but demand for glass plates is growing
Glasses used for serving food will become more widespread
Cast-iron oven-to-tableware making more of a statement for modern dining
Increased demand for anti-chipping guarantees

CAPTION: Churchill's Gold Alchemy crockery range (left) has recently been recommended by Lockhart Catering Equipment for an exclusive 15-bedroom West Country hotel frequented by members of the royal family. The company felt the classical, elegant design would not detract from the quality of the food and would reflect the qualities and values of the establishment. The crockery will be complemented by silver-plated cutlery in a Bead Parish design and Arc's Cabernet glasses.
