COVALEY Launches New Website with Curated Food Blog

ROCHESTER, NY – Plate Poignee announces Certified Master Chef Dale Miller, AAC, as their Brand Ambassador to represent their unique product line of COVALEY serving accessories to consumers and commercial hospitality and foodservice entities.

Chef Miller is one of only 68 certified master chefs in the United States and brings with him years of extensive training and experience as a chef, restaurateur, consultant, and culinary professional.

Originally crafted from a French design, the COVALEY product line offers a selection of elegant, versatile, and practical serveware accessories that elevate the art of plating, serving, and sharing. Its unique design provides convenient and hands-free no-tip serving, allows hot plates to be carried and passed easily, and fits multiple size and shape dishware for home entertaining.

“I am honored to represent this innovative culinary tool,” said Chef Dale Miller. “I look forward to sharing this new product with friends and family as well as promoting its presentation and efficiency to the foodservice and hospitality industry. It’s a great solution for today’s environment that calls for masks and hands-free serving.”

The plate handles are engineered from culinary-grade stainless steel, can lift up to 150 pounds, are dishwasher safe, and made in the USA.

“We are extremely delighted and proud to have Chef Miller join our team. His creativity and inspiration are central to our new marketing initiatives and the launch of our newly redesigned website,” said Sally Humphrey, President of Plate Poignee, LLC.

The new COVALEY website provides information and helpful tips on ways to use the serving utensil, ordering options, and kitchen tips and recipes provided by Chef Miller.
