Whether you run your home's kitchen or a restaurant, you can spice up your dinner table by displaying your condiments creatively. Instead of simply placing bottles of ketchup and mustard on your table, you can try using condiment holders or small bowls. The way you arrange your table could attract diners of all types, from young picky eaters to sophisticated foodies.
Instead of using the manufacturers' bottles that your condiments come packaged in at the grocery store, buy your own set of matching glass or plastic bottles to add a touch of style to your table. You can use plastic if you prefer to be able to squeeze ketchup, mustard or relish out of your bottle, or you can go for glass for a more refined look.
Small dipping bowls can offers your dinner guests a more personalised feel. Set a bowl for each of your guests' condiments on your table and add a few spoonfuls of your condiment. This prevents your guests from seeing your condiment bottles and can give your table a more organised look. A disadvantage to this method of display is that guests can't control their own condiment portion sizes. You may waste your condiments if you use too much and have to continuously monitor your guests' condiments levels to be sure you've given them enough.
If you own a restaurant, using a condiment holder can create a clear place for your guests to put your condiment bottles after use. It keeps them organised and easy to spot if one is missing or low. You can adapt this display method to your home, too, by purchasing a restaurant-style condiment holder. You can find holders for a few bottles or you can find holders that store combinations of bottles, napkins, utensils and other kitchen tools.
