“As the owner of a successful Sydney restaurant located on its most prestigious retail corner, I’m often asked what differentiates us from others when it comes to impressing our corporate clients.


It is not only the food and ambience which are important but also the finer details that the discerning guest will note and appreciate.


Marguerite Dore’s stunning plateware is an example of such detail.The serving of fine food requires quality presentation.


Marguerites great range of unique colours and designs create an eloquent backdrop to our signature canapé and cocktail food. They also provide a level of style and sophistication when presented at the table that adds to the theatre of any event.Another important quality in Marguerite Dore’s products are their durability. In the first 12 months after rolling out this plateware we are yet to have a breakage which provides add-on value to our bottom line”

Very happy with newly purchased dinnerware.


After years of looking for a uniquely different dinnerware set, I was surfing the web for some Australian made products,when I came across marguerite doré products. I emailed the designer/artist about my interest in her work, and to my surprise and delight, I received an answer within twenty four hours. We discussed patterns, styles and before making a big commitment, I asked for a sample set to get an idea of the actual patterns and colors.


Speaking and communicating directly with M Dore made it very easy to decide what to order, she also delivered everything in a timely and professional manner. The dinnerware sets come in different designs, shapes and colors to satisfy a variety of tastes, and they are perfectly designed for entertaining at home or in any professional culinary setting.


M Dore is a true professional who stands behind her products, answering queries and providing uniquely elegant dinnerware and glassware in a prompt and courteous manner.


I personally cannot wait to throw my first dinner party!

Melbourne Food and Wine was thrilled to showcase a selection of marguerite doré’s gorgeous glassware pieces during a handful of Festival events. Marguerite’s service throughout the selection and creation process provided us confidence in planning through the continuous updates on the glassware progress and delivery expectations.  


The colours, textures and shapes of the tableware and platters were perfectly aligned to the 2014 Festival theme of water and complimented the food and service delivery of several Festival catering partners.

I adore Marguerite, her work is so fabulous it shows not just the artistic talent but the love she puts in to every single piece. I love and have become very fond of marguerite not just as an artisan but as a genuinely kind spirited and wonderful person with a generous heart.


She truly cares not just about her work but the people she connects with. My life has been enriched by this experience and I’ve become a better person for knowing her. I can’t say how beautiful her work is as words and pictures simply do not convey how exquisite it is.


Please feel confident to buy and enjoy your own “love affair” with her work. Marguerite thank you

I kept hearing from the Melbourne chefs about Marguerite Dore. So it was a winning decision to invite Marguerite along to one of the Executive Chef Club events.  All the chefs absolutely adored her! She comes with knowledge and expertise from some of the world’s most celebrated chefs.


All those beautiful bespoke dining plates, platters and show plates are absolutely wow factor and dishwasher proof. A perfect complement to any classic or modern dish. Her plates also travel around the world and right now – it is an exciting time for plates locally and internationally.


Chefs need to be on top of latest trends. An encounter with Marguerite and her plates is one of those rarely treasured encounters, if only a few times in your life, put it on your to-do list!!!
