We are an online publication that believes in the value of things well considered. From indulgent conversations, occasions, gatherings and food. Our focus is on honesty. Not just the idea of honesty being true in essence of right and wrong but true to the value of understanding, true to actions and true to being meaningful and considered.
For the artisans, craftsmen, creators and lovers of the beautiful and considered, we want to hold a conversation with you. We are intrigued by your offerings, and want to be taken on a journey of discovery and share it amongst the &PLATE community and many others along the way.
tête-à-tête &PLATE values the quality of good conversation, good company and good food, endeavouring to share our vision and way of life as to what we believe is good for the soul. It brings us such delight to enjoy good food, good company and good conversation and be able to share and inspire such simplicity through ideas and thoughts.
We relish in the idea that food brings people together. Not only through the simple enjoyment of a meal and its tasty goodness but also by food having the ability to stimulate conversation. We believe unequivocally that well-considered food, gatherings, occasions and indulgent conversation improves our state of being. Sharing food and having a little tête-à-tête shouldn't be a luxury but an instance integrated into our everyday lives.
Amongst the three 'good's' we believe that the same attention should be applied to life at large, following closely the proverbial French way of living. From a thoughtful dose of physical exercise, cup(s) of tea, a moderate amount of wine, a little sun, a good laugh and a generous amount of literature. As sensual beings we encourage gracing our five senses of smell, sight, taste, touch and hearing.
Understanding the circumstances and extremes of modern life, we try to make simplistic positive choices about the way we live. Attempting to nurture our senses with balancing a life of happy, healthy, creative and fruitful in order to feed that feeling of yearning where our bodies try to find and nourish the home base of our soul.
