Soak It In

Dipping fresh bread in olive oil has long been a tasty, healthy alternative to butter. In fact, the Italians invented a special dish just for that purpose, called a pinzimonio. Now, designer Mary Judge spices up the traditional version to create these contemporary dipping dishes. The terraced interior surface of the bowl highlights the rich color of olive oil, with each depth appearing to reflect a different shade. The ridges can also be used to brush excess oil from the bread, giving you just the right amount with each morsel. The bowls are molded in Italy using terra cotta clay, and finished with a white, non-toxic glaze. They will be a delicious addition to an antipasti table, or your next family-style spread. Made in Italy.

        It's missing a small plate for it to set upon and also hold a couple slices of bread.

          Lovely, but small

            As someone else has mentioned, this dish is lovely, but I was surprised by how small it is--it's probably all of 3 to 4" across! Still, the recipient (an olive oil freak) LOVED it. If it wasn't so expensive, I would have given her two--at least then if she has someone else joining her for bread and olive oil, they could each have their own bowls!
            I've never seen one of these anywhere else, so I'm giving it 4 stars despite the size. For a true olive oil aficionado, it's a great gift!

                  I was underwhelmed by this piece. It seems fairly small for the price. Very pretty and a cute gift for an olive oil lover, but nothing super special.

                      Adds beauty and depth to display the olive oil and makes it more enjoyable when dipping bread.
