One of the simplest ways to step up your cooking is plating. Presentation has the ability to make or break a dish. It can be as simple as setting the table or as complex as varied purees.
Garnishes can do a lot for a dish. Cilantro and parsley are some of the most commonly used garnishes because of their vibrant coloring and universal flavors. A thin slice of fruit can be a great addition to a dish as it will add a pop of color and delicate design.
Be sure that your plating will match the dish in taste while still contrasting the color scheme. Read meats go very well with acidic or smokey flavors while sweet matches citrus well. Don’t shy away from trying strange combinations as they will often surprise you.
