Description:
Make a maritime statement with these fully cleaned, UK Sourced, white scallop shells.

Not only have these shells for crafts and exterior decoration, they have also been used as serving dishes. The shells have been prepared to food standards, however, just like buying any food plate wash thoroughly before use. (They will happily survive a cycle in the dish washer !)

Background: Scallops are marine bi-valves found in all the world oceans. In total there are some 350 species many of them being highly prized as a food source.
Surprisingly scallops are active swimmers and migrate the oceans.

Scallop Shells in History: The scallop shell is the traditional emblem of Saint James, hence the origin of the name of the shellfish dish Coquilles St Jacques. Medieval Christians making the pilgrimage to the apostle's shrine at Santiago de Compostela in Spain carried a scallop shell and at churches and Abbeys along the way they would be offered as much sustenance as could be picked up with one scoop.

Use of Shells for Food Presentation.

Seashells like these Atlantic or King Scallops are known as bi-valves. These make the best presentation platters due to their bowl-like shape and the ability to clean them thoroughly on all surfaces.

Ssallop shells offered by Specialist Aggregates 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 along the edges.

Whilst seashells are dishwasher safe we would suggest that hand washing may be more practical. Specialist Aggregates' 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.
