Amanda Haas, manager of Williams-Sonoma's San Francisco test kitchen, has a collection of Apilco all-white porcelain dishes that she uses daily, she says. "It sounds fancy, but then you see how simple and sturdy it is. It's like the perfect little black dress, because it goes with everything," Haas says. Apilco pieces can be found in a variety of places, from mom-and-pop general stores to hardware stores.
