Herring Dish


Raw herring: a typical Dutch delicacy. One that is deserving of its own dish. The herring dish is something often found in Dutch households starting from the 18th century onward. The shape of the dish on which the herring is served has remained almost completely unchanged over the centuries. The outer rim of the dish is decorated. The scaled skin of the fish shows various shades of blue, all obtained by mixing water and cobalt oxide: the blue pigment which creates the famous Delft Blue.
