A Fish as Ginger Grater

With the Boga ginger grater by Valerio Sommella, Alessi offers a useful kitchen utensil with fins. The shape of the grater made of satin finished steel was inspired by the Bogue fish, a species of seabream with a tapered body. On days where the grater is not needed, it can simply be left on the table as a decorative element.

Inspiration from Japan

Valerio Sommella got the idea for the ginger grater in Japan. In Europe, it is not common to use a specially-made grater in order to shred ginger, whereas in Japan, the ginger grater is a standard kitchen tool. In a street in Tokyo, where many shops were located for kitchen utensils, the designer saw numerous ginger graters in various shapes, materials and sizes. In the midst of all the Japanese ginger graters, Sommella decided to design his own with a narrow tapered body, large bug eyes and elegant fins.
