As of Friday I am now the happy owner of a brand new set of Sophie Conran dishes! A lovely blend of modern simplicity with a tactile, slightly irregular hand thrown look, they're exactly what I wanted for everyday tableware. Not surprising that the design is perfect, though, as Sophie is not only a wonderful food writer (with two excellent cookbooks so far), but also has stellar creative genes — she's the daughter of designer, restauranteur and retailer Sir Terence Conran and food writer Caroline Conran. That's Sophie in the photo above.
