Having a large selection of serving dishes for dinner party use can set the tone for the evening. A tureen makes an elegant vessel for serving hot soups and stews.
Porcelain and ceramic are the two most common materials for a traditional tureen and attractive motifs and glazes abound. Modern styles can feature stainless steel construction. Tureens often come with a dome-shaped lid, serving platter and serving spoon. Choose a tureen for its elegant styling, and make it the centrepiece.
