Description & Application:

We had often considered how a spiral shell could be made suitable for food presentation, the problem being how to ensure the shell is clean to the tip of the spiral. One answer has been to select a shell with an open spiral whirl and then to cut away the sides to form an open basket and allow for thorough cleaning to take place.

Use of Shells for Food Presentation.

These turbo shells make for unusual presentation containers, either direct onto plates or using scallop shells as a serving platter.

Sea shells like these gold mouth turbos offered by Marine Arts are made naturally form the mineral Calcium Carbonate. We are not aware of any other compounds or minerals within the seashells that would preclude their use as food presentation dishes.

Seashells have a complex layered construction, making them extremely strong and light weight. In many cases seashells are stronger than ceramic plates, but be aware that chipping can occur.

Whilst seashells are dishwasher safe we would suggest that hand washing may be more practical. Online Shells have been thoroughly cleaned, however, post cleaning the shells are stored under warehouse conditions and appropriate measures should be taken commensurate with established food hygiene practice before using seashells for food presentation.

Seashells are non-porous. However. there can be occasions when deterioration of the surface can cause pitting which could potentially harbor bacteria if the shells are not properly cleaned when multi-used.

Seashells can be used for cooking and presentation of hot food. Do not put seashells in the microwave.

Seashells can also handle the cold. When used as display pieces in the chill cabinet repeated cycles of washing may dull the seashells’ colour. This can be restored with a very light coating of cooking oil.
