Row, row, row your (salad) boat


We pretend forks are aeroplanes just to get our children to eat their dinner, so perhaps serving up a salad in a row boat isn’t such a crazy idea.

Some of us have children that will eat anything – no bribery or silly antics required. The rest of us (which I’d conservatively estimate to be ninety-eight per cent of parents) are continually employing novel ways to entice the kids to try something that may be marginally good for them. In all honesty, my boys are great eaters when it comes to vegetables, but salad is a whole other kettle of fish.


So perhaps this Row Boat Salad Bowl may distract them enough to sneak some onto their forks? Regardless, it’s a nifty server, which could easily be adapted to serve other goodies as part of a pirate-themed party. It would also make a great fruit salad bowl. It’s made from polished aluminium and the carved sheesham oars double as serving tools. It costs US$65 from Uncommon Goods, which is planning to begin international shipping in July.
