"If you're afraid of butter, use cream." - Julia Child

Another grand idea for someone who loves to host, or even a gift to yourself if you're planning on cooking a lot this season and taking it to family or friends.  This Olive Plat Tote is designed to carry deliciously prepared food with ease. Simply slide a plate, bowl, or casserole dish through the center opening to keep items horizontal and upright. Accompanied with a Nourishing Notes 'Cook with the ones you love' cotton kitchen towel this gift is not only unique, it's highly practical, very reusable, and rather ingenious. 


We adore the collection from Aplat. The design is clean, modern, and aesthetically pleasing, making your gift recipient look ever so chic when they arrive with their potluck supper dish for friends and family. Paired with Nourishing Notes 'Cook with the ones you love' kitchen towel it's a beautiful reminder of the joy food and gatherings bring.

Kitchen Towel

This is the Food Philosophy that started the whole collection for Nourishing Notes and they believe in in, just as much as they believe in butter over margarine.

Based in San Francisco, Aplat creates products that are simply beautiful, thoughtfully crafted, and sustainably designed. Founder Shujan Bertrand created the company in homage to her family lifestyle in France, which involves daily rituals of sharing homemade food and wine. Sewn by women in San Francisco, the Aplat collection of washable, reusable culinary totes is manufactured with empathy, applying a zero-waste origami design using 100% organic cotton.  "Creating something new yet timeless is my purpose. I strive for simple classic square shapes, but apply an origami volume approach to everything Aplat carries." - Shujan Bertrand.

Your message is handwritten on an extra thick card with an inspirational quote on one side (quotes vary). A small 2" square Norsu Haus information card is packed inside your gift. Your notecard is slipped under the taffeta ribbon that ties around the gift box for a neat finish.
