Make Food Beautiful...It's All In The Presentation

One of the most alluring thing about food is the way it is presented. Give me a hundred ideas about show and I can match you with a hundred more.

I think that food presentation is such an art and one that can be easily learned first by paying attention when you lay your food out on a plate.

One of the recent suggestions that was new to me is to use an odd number of pieces on the plate, i.e. one or three strawberries, not two or four. Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye.

Three's a crowd or an eye pleaser? I'll be photographing strawberries next week so you be the judge!

Bon Appetit!
