Tableware for international favourites – a new interpretation

Pizza Passion and Pasta Passion for perfect serving
Pizza and pasta are not only favourites in Italy, but are enjoying tremendous popularity throughout the world, perhaps because there are few other meals that allow so many creative "updates". The Austrian star chef Wolfgang Puck runs "Spago", a top restaurant in Los Angeles that serves pizza not with mozzarella and salami but, for instance, with salmon and caviar. Similarly, wholemeal pizza made from gluten-free flour is increasingly in demand. Pasta is also flourishing as a rediscovered favourite. The trend is for the pasta itself to be freshly made in the restaurant and accompanied by sauces and pesto containing unusual and exciting ingredients such as orange or mint. So the most delicious carbohydrates in the world are fun again – also when eaten at home. For everyone who would like to enjoy and serve pizza and pasta in an uncomplicated but stylish fashion, Villeroy & Boch has therefore designed two new, original food concepts: Pizza Passion and Pasta Passion.

Pizza Passion: Always Well-Rounded
Uncomplicated and at the same time stylish, products for the perfect homemade pizza are what Villeroy & Boch offers in the series Pizza Passion, which in 2017 was expanded to include a rectangular party platter. The wood platter made of bright bamboo, is the right size for a pizza out of the baking pan that can be cut along cutting grooves using a pizza roller or sharp knife into six perfect pieces. To make carrying easier handle ridges are integrated into the platter. The pizza can then be served on six easy to handle pizza plates made of white premium porcelain, which is ideal for the set table, but can also be used while standing and on the couch.

Pasta Passion – Uncomplicated Pleasure Thanks to Intelligent Features
Lasagna fans especially will be excited about the new products in the assortment: in addition to the large pan in which you can make lasagna for the whole family, there is also a lasagna pan for one portion. Both exactly match the size of lasagna noodles so you don’t have to break them to fit them into the pan. Thanks to the matching ceramic cover, that can also be used to set the pan on, you can take the pan out of the oven and put it on the table and serve it from there, or eat your lasagna right out of the smaller pan. The innovative “lasagna lifter” made of stainless steel with removable silicon grips is the perfect supplement. It allows you to serve perfectly portioned pieces without making a mess or mashing up the lasagna. With the flat, rectangular lasagna plate from the existing assortment, which has a small rim to stop sauce from spilling out over the sides, your enjoyment of the lasagna will be perfect – whether at a stylish table setting or a relaxed night on the couch with the plate on your lap. And if you don’t eat everything, you can just cover the pan with the ceramic cover and save the rest in a hygienically and environmentally friendly way in the refrigerator.
