Stunning Garnishes That You Can Create!
Enough episodes of Chopped or Iron Chef watched and you'll start to get a sense that presentation is half of the challenge to creating a good dish. You don't need TV to tell you though. A visit to an often recommended local restaurant and, Michelin star or not, if the food is well prepared you'll see it before you taste it.
Since the first sense to taste your food is actually your sight, here a few fun garnishing how-tos to try at home. Consider yourself an artist in the kitchen, and with simple ingredients and a paring knife who knows what you'll come up with?
