Bamboo Bonanza

Bamboo dinnerware seemed to be everywhere this summer. I guess that many people buy it because it’s disposable or reusable, biodegradable, and made from a renewable resource. But I like its neutral tan color and classy appearance.

Used alone, bamboo makes a perfect foil for any solid or printed tablecloth, and it mixes well with printed or solid-colored paper plates. The hosts at a vegetable stir fry party that I attended recently gave every guest a bamboo charger. The over-sized dinner plates lent support to smaller red paper plates, allowing us to load up on the rice and saucy vegetables without fear of leakage or breakthrough.
