I love this simple and beautiful pedestal. The edges of this earthenware stand are gently scalloped and punctuated with antique-style raised beading. A lovely stage for a freshly baked frittata or decadent dessert, it’s a graceful centerpiece for my table.

The classic French tapered rolling pin, ideal for pastries, cookies, pies and marzipan. Its diameter and weight allow you to thin dough more effectively than one with handles and ball bearings. [WILLIAMS SONOMA, GOLDA'S KITCHEN and more...]

WILTON Tart/Quiche Pan 11" - French pastry chefs rely on classic fluted pans like this to create attractive tarts with tender, golden crusts.

This was a Christmas gift from S., who searched the city for the perfect wine carafe. This decanter’s broad base lets red wine breathe properly. Also useful for serving white wine, it's hand blown in Romania with a flared lip for pouring. It holds a 750-ml. bottle of wine. [POTTERY BARN]
