NEW YORK–Flatware manufacturer Gourmet Settings has been selected by the James Beard Foundation as a JBF House Purveyor, becoming its official flatware provider. Purveyors for the James Beard Foundation create premium ingredients, goods or services within the culinary industry.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with the James Beard Foundation as we strongly admire their passion for providing scholarships and educational opportunities—it matches our passion for providing the best flatware,” said Hildy Abrams, president of Gourmet Settings.
The flatware collection the non-profit foundation selected is called Soprano, which Gourmet Settings designed 10 years ago and is defined by fluid lines and wide assortment of pieces. The design, with a wider tail and tapered neck, was created for both function and form, after focused research on the varying ways people hold their utensils during meals, the company said.
