Slice and serve.

Inspired by the ubiquitous blue-green paper baskets that berries are sold in at farmer's markets, this cheery rustic tart plate is like a piece of bright blue sky. Bring it straight from the oven to your table; the rough, unglazed porcelain surface is naturally nonstick, so slices of shortbread crust and savory dinner tart (like the one we whipped up with sausage and kale) will slip out with ease.

For faster cleaning, plate can be greased or lined with parchment before baking, but its slender design is also dishwasher safe.
