Back To Basics

Back To Basics

Posted by Larissa Cairns on

There is something fanatical about Michelin Stars. So when Nobu was stripped of their stars last month, the link between the Michelin Guide and fine dining was broken. Dining experiences going back to the basics are getting high praise.


The Times recently published: Michelin Guide declares fine dining is dead: long live the pub. It was about the change in the way we celebrate food. Rather than stuffy, sci-fi inspired gastronomy there is a trend towards casual dining. More and more people are looking for delicious flavours and tastes over anything else.


On the topic of dining kept simple, we must mention our friends at The Felin Fach Griffin in Wales who recently won The Good Pub Guide’s award for Dining Pub of the Year for Wales. We are thrilled they have chosen our aprons to be a part of their kitchen.



Going back to basics is a definite trend. This is completely in line with how we feel about our designs. We believe in understated luxury and just let the linen do the talking.


Our collection of table and kitchen linen has caught the eye of fantastic pubs, hotels and restaurants (see below). We recommend adding some of it to your home too…
