Ask Ina

Do you use mostly white dishes and white Le Creuset? I love various colors but have a hard time mixing colors when entertaining. Am I being silly?

From Cathy Gilchrist - Asheville, NC

I use mostly white dishes and serving platters because they generally make the food look the best.  There are a few exceptions:  salads and green vegetables can look beautiful on grey platters and I love to serve dessert on colorful old-fashioned plates that I collect at flea markets and antique china stores.
