East Fork is a favorite brand here at Apartment Therapy and Kitchn — and pretty much everywhere else on the internet. The North Carolina-based ceramics company is well known for its elegantly rimmed dinner plates and chunky, cozy mugs, which are so popular they’ve got their own hashtag (#TheMug). But it’s not just the function and craftsmanship that loyal fans love; it’s those dreamy glazes (hello, Taro!) that set East Fork apart from other potters. So with that in mind, I’m super eager to share the news about their newly relaunched collaboration with Momofuku.

The line features two limited-edition glazes designed in partnership with the famed restaurant group: Orchard, a lush green, and Peachy Keen, a deep, sunny yellow. East Fork launched a limited selection of items in these hues last winter, but don’t be surprised if they don’t look familiar. Both colors sold out in minutes back then, but now’s your chance to score your own. More great news: These two colors are now available for every single piece in East Fork’s signature collection (I’ve got my eye on the toddler cup in Orchard; it’s a perfect grown-up glass for whisky … just sayin’).

All of East Fork’s pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe, and they’re also just the right amount of “hefty” so that clumsy diners (hi) don’t risk breaking them at every meal. Since they’re so durable, you could even use them to up the style factor for summer cookouts and picnics. I’m already imagining a pretty Caprese pasta salad on a side plate in Orchard and a Peachy Keen dinner plate stacked with juicy burgers.  And when the snow is piling up next January, I know that these two summery colors will remind me of warmer days. 

If just seeing the word “Momofuku” on your screen has your taste buds longing for David Chang’s culinary creations, you’ll be thrilled to know that the collaboration also includes three mouthwatering pantry must-haves straight from the Momofuku Culinary Lab — toasted sesame oil, seasoned salt, and chili crunch. In a word, yum.
