As part of our year-long 20th-anniversary celebration, we’re sharing the 20 years of inspiration plating food and what we have loved most over the last two decades — the people. We could not have reached this milestone without our excellent partners and are grateful to them for being an essential part of our journey.

“I have been a fan of FOH® for many years because their designs evolve with the food and the times, but their durability remains steady and constant throughout all collections.” – Chef Elizabeth Falkner, Celebrity Chef & Restaurateur

The Partner Lookbook.

To commemorate the occasion, we created the first ever Front of the House® Partner Lookbook: Anniversary Edition, a collection of partners who have grown with us and shine a light on our collections, plating food, with each of their creative presentations that tell a story. It highlights the people-to-plate inspiration and is the connection between the tabletop and the world's flavors.

The Lookbook is a tribute to the past, present, and future collaborations beginning with just a few of the long-time supporters.

“FOH® is always at the forefront of trends and every chef’s needs regarding all things china, glassware, and flatware. I love their creativity and the fact that they are dialed into the chefs’ perspectives. Family-owned and locally grown is like icing on the cake!!” – Chef Michael Schwartz, Restaurateur

Influential Individuals.

The Lookbook features 20 renowned chefs such as Jeremiah Tower, Elizabeth Falkner, Francios Payard, and Dayanny De La Cruz, with more from around the world.

We were thrilled and humbled to have them accept our invitation to be featured and share their passion for plating. The result was extraordinary, showcasing various plating food practices and genius, from Personal Chefs to James Beard Finalists to Winners to Michelin Starred experiences. The chefs elaborate on what vessels captured their attention and #perfectlyplated their creative vision on restaurant dinnerware.

Having the chance to understand their needs and wants has helped us design and deliver.

“I choose FOH® because it represents everything that makes me feel hopeful about the future. Our diversity and our strength come from places like FOH®. When it comes to the plating part, I look at all the things designed by FOH® as a colorful canvas for inspiration such as shape and texture.” – Chef Dayanny De La Cruz, Regional Executive Chef, Sodexo Live! & Executive Chef of Hard Rock Stadium, Miami

Beyond the Plate.

Reading through their testimonials confirmed what we have been working towards these twenty years; A genuinely collaborative partnership that transforms tabletops with quality, trend-forward designs and, most importantly, a commitment to sustainability.

I have created long-lasting relationships that have shown up through every project, and every milestone, and am completely empathetic to the demands of this beautiful industry. When we put people before profit, profit follows. They [FOH®] are not just a supplier, they are part of a journey, and they are a part of our fabric of success. Their product, itself. is undeniably ahead of trends through constant evolution and innovation. This is a dream partnership that allows my full vision to come together”. – Chef Molly Demers, Climate Pledge Arena
