Although many of us have moved away from formal family dinners these days, that doesn’t mean that on special occasions the table cannot be laid properly, the nice crockery got out the draw and everything is put in place to make it a special occasion. One area which most people overlook during this process is the salt and pepper shakers, the king and queen of the dining table. Although this will upset chefs all over the place, it is hard to enjoy a meal, no matter how nice, without seasoning it to one’s own taste.
The condiment dispensers may seem the least important part of the whole experience but that doesn’t mean they cannot have an element of fun. Whether you are buying salt and pepper shakes for use every day, on special occasions or just because you like collecting them, we have picked some of our favourite ones below. Let us know which you like in the comments section.
