Wire garden trug
Why is it, that if the french have a way of doing something, particularly when it has to do with food, that we are either suspicious or a little reverential? I have certainly felt that about wire vegetable baskets. It's not just that they photograph well when full of freshly picked fruit or veg: the kitchen garden equivalent of fishnet stockings on Beatrice Dalle. That would be missing the point. But because our Gallic cousins not only realised that, once picked, the wire would allow any soil on the produce to fall to the ground with every step to la cuisine. And that, once there, they could be rinsed and dried in situ. Clever. Very clever, Les Galles.
