A "plate" and a "bowl" are two distinct types of dinnerware used for serving food. While there isn't a standard term for a direct mixture or combination of a plate and a bowl, some dinnerware sets or specialized dishware have been designed to incorporate features of both a plate and a bowl.
One such hybrid piece of dinnerware is sometimes called a "bowl plate," "deep plate," or "pasta plate." PotteryDen calls it "blate". These items typically have a shallow, wide, and slightly curved shape, somewhat resembling a hybrid between a plate and a shallow bowl. They might have a broader, more open shape than a traditional bowl but with a rim that is more raised than a standard plate, allowing for the containment of saucy or liquid-based dishes without spilling.
This type of dinnerware is versatile and can be used for serving a variety of dishes, especially those with some liquid or sauce, like pasta, stews, salads, or meals that include a combination of ingredients that could benefit from the rimmed edge.
