As eating is one of the core activities in most homes, '''dishes''' are an important and frequently used furnishing. Depending on the context, the term dishes can include a variety of objects. Plates and cups are prototypical dishes. Platters, serving containers (gravy bowls, tea pots, cream pitchers, etc.) and saucers are also dishes. When using dishes as a relatively generic term for food holders, dishes may also refer to [[pots and pans]], decorative ceramics, [[flatware]] and [[crystal]]. The term dishes is also used to refer to the food served on the dishes. For example, people talk about whether they will serve "Indian dishes" or "Spanish dishes" instead of "Indian or Spanish food". (See the articles on [[food]] for articles related to that use in this wiki.)
