While living in Mumbai I had an obsession with tiffin tins, and used to love buying them in the markets. The tins are used for packing a curry lunch and all its condiments, pickles and rice for a hearty lunch packed from home and delivered by the trusty dubbawallas. Brass, tin and ceramic were all and are used.
Today I have a new model of Tiffin tin from John Lewis made from melamine and will be perfect for picnics with sandwiches, salads and dressings. I love the modern coastal colours – here’s looking to summer!
