I know it’s not necessary BUT…you have to admit, food does taste better when it’s presented well! I just received a wonderful compliment from my daughter Lauren. She called to tell me how much fun she had preparing breakfast for her roommates and “staging” their food on pretty plates with a beautiful fruit medley to compliment the meal( Much like I did when she was growing up for her and her friends!) I was so proud. It’s great to see our children grow and carry on special traditions and how as adults they can appreciate the fine art of cooking and food preparation in a whole new light.
Why not try creating your next plate with a few simple accessories like the fruit plate above? Just add a simple flower or decorative element to the plate and take your food presentation from plain to pizzazz!
Another great yet simple trick to add sparkle to a plain pitcher of water is to add lemon or orange slices. It not only looks pretty but gives the water a wonderful citrus flavor. Pour into a beautiful glass and top it off with a mint sprig.
