This set of Map Plates ensures you and your family can practice your geography at the dinner table. Each plate is shaped like a European country and is marked with its major cities. Pushed together, the plates create an attractive map of Europe.

While the product description on What on Earth imagines cooks serving up pasta on the Italy plate, sauerkraut on the Germany plate or paella on the Spain plate, I think it'd be way more fun to place these global foods on random plates for a true cultural quiz.

I could also see these Map Plates used to help differentiate the origin of artisan cheeses at a wine and cheese party.
