In Japan, where shichimi, yuzukosho and sesame seeds are regular fixtures of the dining table, two shakers doesn’t cut it. So naturally Japanese designers have come up with creative ways to integrate the additional tabletop real estate and the Town Condiment Set by Essence is one of them.
True to the 400-year-old pottery-making tradition of Hizen, Kyushu, the product is a simple, modern, smooth-to-the-touch porcelainware that draws attention to the otherwise overlooked condiment holders.
And there’s need for it on the ever-evolving western table, too. Popular meal toppers, such as chia seeds and red pepper flakes, could use proper housing, and you can swap out condiments based on the genre of meal you’re serving.
In three and four piece sets, each includes a two-hole shaker, a large chimney shaker, and one with a removable lid and miniature bamboo spoon. The fourth piece is a medium single-hole shaker. With a wooden stand and special gift-wrapped box, this tiny town brings sprinkles of joy to dining and certainly to those it is gifted.
