"KUTANI" dish made by Saichi Matsumoto.
KUTANI means nine valleys and is the name of an area and a village. The two characters that make up the word KUTANI consist of the character for "nine"(KU) and "valley"(TANI). KUTANI porcelain was born in 1655. I enjoy serving the chocolate from a wonderful pastry shop "MAURI" founded by Francesc Mauri in 1929 in Barcelona, with beautiful green & gold SAICHI’s KUTANI dish.
