Valentine, restaurants and ceramics
French-born and London-based, I'm a food writer running My Hungry Valentine restaurant guide and consulting agency by day.
I have always been fascinated by what goes into a restaurant on top of the menu and wine list—service, playlist, lighting, decor, tableware… Experimenting with clay by night for a few years now, the project of launching my own ceramics studio in London naturally grew—making tableware goods and going from content to container!
My Hungry Valentine Ceramics Studio focuses on handmade tableware for contemporary restaurants and home. After endless experimentations, mistakes and other broken parts—which still happen all the time to be honest—, I feel like I have managed to develop unique, imperfect and personal pieces, all handmade in my London shared studio. Each piece comes with its own story, its own tiny variations. Like you, like me, like the recipes that will come to dress them up.
I hope they will brighten up your daily table, sublimate your pasta fix, wake up your morning toast or charm your olives and other apéro essentials.
