Plating your food is an important aspect of cooking, as it can elevate the presentation and make your dish look more appetizing. Here are some tips on how to plate your food:
Choose the Right Plate: Choose a plate that complements the colors and textures of your dish. Start with the Sauce: Start by adding a small amount of sauce to the plate, and use a spoon to create a design or pattern. Our collection of handmade ceramics make the perfect dish to beautifully display your food.
Arrange the Protein: Place the protein in the center of the plate, and use a knife to slice or cut it to make it more visually appealing.
Add the Starch: Place the starch (such as rice, potatoes, or pasta) on one side of the plate.
Add the Vegetables: Place the vegetables on the other side of the plate, and use a mix of colors and textures to make the dish more visually appealing.
Garnish: Add a final touch by garnishing the dish with fresh herbs, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cheese.
Keep it Simple: Don't overcrowd the plate, and keep the presentation simple and elegant.
Use the Rule of Three: Use the rule of three when plating your food, which means arranging the protein, starch, and vegetables in a triangular pattern.
Play with Height: Play with height by stacking or layering your food to create a more interesting presentation.
Clean the Plate: Clean the edges of the plate with a damp cloth or paper towel to remove any drips or smudges.
Remember, plating is an art form and takes practice. Experiment with different techniques and have fun with it! Try using our single-origin olive oil to add a drizzle of flavor to any dish!
