Plastic Plates , Minis or plastic disposables for Hors d' oeuvres, Appetizers and First Plates makes for disposable dinnerware with panache'
I owe you all a photo of the Expresso cup but trust me you will love it. I put it together with another Mini and it works like a teeny saucer with just enough room to add a mini spoon and a piece of rind.
These single taste First plate, Hors d'oeuvres, or Appetizer plates are the Epicurian rage on South Beach, the Riviera...all the trendy spots internationally.
Served from your Buffet, passed, or sitting on a beverage napkin on a service plate as the 1st plate, they are sure to surprise and delight your clients. The little tasting spoons and forks are unique and adorable. And finally, EMI Yoshi has come up with the perfect Demi or Expresso cup. The little spoons are a perfect compliment ....and don't think just Expresso. I may be giving away my secret passion here but.... think rich Expresso Chocolate pudding.
But seriously, while they are all the rage, as we used to say in the 60's, but if you start to run the numbers it can get pretty expensive to use these on a buffet and provide some magic mind reading multiples like they do in the magazines. I really advocate that they be used as individual "nut cups"* (history to follow) or as "1st plates" ( reasoning to follow)
All the items are injected plastic except for the lower priced squares which are thermoformed.
We don't have everything in every color in stock, so we can not ship everything in splits but I can order cases in any color, black, white or clear ( called green for some reason).

Transporting food pans?
To make transporting food for first plates less worrisome, and if you need to keep the contents of the pans hot or cold, I recommend your investing in the ThermalCor Insulated Carriers. It maintains food temperature for hours, is lightweight, stacks best, stores flat and can be wiped down and reused at least 30 times.
The large size holds 2 full size or 4 half size steamtable pans.
The small size holds 1 full size or 2 half size steamtable pans.
Both sizes have foam center insulation and are covered inside and outside with Reflective Radiant barrier.
