Sauce Dishes and Their Many Styles
While more traditional dinnerware like plates and bowls get a lot of the attention when it comes to designs and styles, smaller dinnerware like sauce dishes and other serveware have just as much to offer. While sauce dishes aren’t as popular on Western tables, they are instrumental in many Japanese recipes where dipping sauces are common and add more to a dish than just a condiment. Many dishes even aren’t considered complete without a final ingredient being used as a sauce. This makes sauce dishes a very common piece of tableware in most Japanese cooking.
Thanks to how commonly sauce dishes are utilized on a table, they often come in as many styles as plates and other dishes so you can find a full matching set. Most dinnerware collections will even include sauce dishes with them to take the searching out of the equation. However, even bought alone, these lovely dishes can be a great addition to any table — both functionally and aesthetically.
Other Great Japanese Dishes
Believe it or not, dishware varies quite a bit between different cultures. Japan, for example, has a number of staples that are often found on a dinner table that simply don’t really have any Western counterparts. For starters, to go right along with the sauce dishes are sauce pots. While not as common as the dishes, pots designed for sauces can often be found on a table sporting soy sauce or a variety of other common sauces like tonkatsu sauce or ponzu sauce.
Another common difference is the sheer amount of tableware. It’s common to pile everything onto one plate in the West, but the tendency in Japan is to plate things separately on smaller plates. This correlates into many small to medium sized plates and bowls being on the table, and these designs really show just how popular bowls tend to be for the table.
