Ideas on plating the food
Presentation is the key. If you worked hard at making it, then work hard at presenting it to show how hard you actually worked at it. One thing I learned in culinary school is that a person will buy something first with their eyes. Take yourself for instance when you go to a bakery, restaurant or anywhere that serves of sells food. How do you know what you want. In most cases you see it and fall in love with its appearance or how delicious it looks that you end up getting it. You don't know how it tastes yet. But you already love it.
|Get this by placing your food in the center of the plate and lightly drizzling the sauce & oils all around your food|
Then you buy it and you either love it or hate it after you take your first few bites. Sometimes you'll hate it. You think it tastes horrible, nothing compared to how it looked etc. But you bought it. Because of how it looked.
|take your food and neatly decorate it cater-cornered on your plate, use different colored vegetables ( raw or cooked) to get the vibrant colors you like and cut up tiny pieces of chives or baby spring onions or any herb. To create the line.|
Sometimes you go through all the hard work of preparing the food but then because you don't know how to properly plate it you end up having your food presentation looking a mess. In this post I am going to teach you different ways that you can actually fix the food on the plate. To make it look more than amazing. Amazing enough where people don't want to touch it because it looks like a work of art as in these pictures below will show it. To be honest even I myself need to take more time to plate the food better than I do.
|Stack your rice, meat and veggies all in layers in the center of your plate and with your meat or veggie sauce/oils or any dressing, dipping sauce you want create this half circle by lightly drizzling it in place around your stacked food.|
|I love this one, here you have what seems to be a perfectly cooked piece of salmon and instead of laying it flat on the plate as usual it is standing on its side. Laying on a bed of fresh vegetables and decorated with edible flowers. Brilliant.|
