Pinch Food Design

New US catering/entertainment company Pinch Food Design is setting out to re-imagine entertaining. Founded by chef Bob Spiegel and designer TJ Girard, Pinch have so far launched a range of "food furniture" which aims to solve many of the everyday problems of catering scenarios.

Pinch bowl

The Pinch bowl is described by its designers as "a custom-designed plate/bowl intended to rest atop a wine or drink glass, enabling guests to eat with a fork while holding a beverage."

Pinch fork

The Pinch fork, meanwhile, is "used for serving several layers of food without compromising the integrity of each individual ingredient."
