Poketo co-founders Angie and Ted turn to this Cacio e Pepe recipe by Bon Appétit time and again for some pure comfort food that requires just a handful of common ingredients you’re likely to already have on hand. “Super easy but satisfying,” says Angie—and perfect on our dishwasher-safe bamboo dinner plates. (Pictured: Bamboo Dinner Plates in Fragments, Doodles, and Drops; Bamboo Salad Plates in Blots, Doodles, and Fragments; Bamboo Bowls in Abstract and Blots; Bamboo Coasters in Blue Abstract, Pink Abstract, and Yellow Abstract)
For a bright and fresh dash of green in your meal, Ted suggests this Korean spinach dish from Korean Bapsang, common as a side dish in many Korean meals or as a component of bibimbap. Our biodegradable bamboo bowls are the perfect size for a generous serving. (Pictured: Bamboo Bowl Set in Abstract)
Los Angeles-based ceramicist and friend of Poketo Raina J. Lee puts her own spin on this mason jar sauerkraut recipe from Kitchn. Her preferred modifications? “A handful of dill, scallions, ginger, wakame seaweed, jalapeño, mustard seeds, coriander, black peppercorns, gochugaru pepper flakes or any other aromatics you want to add.” (Pictured: Linen Tea Towel Set in Multi; Bamboo Dinner Plate in Outline; Bamboo Salad Plate in Abstract)
For dessert, Poketo COO Eric indulges in this Tasty recipe for Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cookies. They’re “ridiculous,” he says, in the best way possible. And the perfect after-dinner coffee companions. (Pictured: Glass Cream and Sugar Set)
