Remember when restaurants used to use plates?

We Want Plates is the global crusade against serving food on bits of wood and roof slates, chips in mugs and drinks in jam jars.

A social media phenomenon, the online movement has gathered thousands of pictures of absurd, unexpected and downright stomach-churning occasions when restaurants have shunned the ordinary plate.

This book is a hilarious collection of the best pictures from We Want Plates, plus previously unpublished material, including:

Soup in a stiletto, bread in a flat cap, beef Wellington on barbed wire, prawns in an iron and a phone box sandwich.

The book contains an introduction by Ross McGinnes, the man behind the crusade, and a foreword by renowned restaurant critic Marina O'Loughlin.
