Eating with your eyes

March 31, 2015

“You first eat with your eyes” Plating and food presentation play a huge role in how we experience food. When a plate of food is put in front of me the first thing I always do is look at it. At this point I'm already calculating if I'm going to enjoy the dish.  We have all been there before...someone presents you with a plate of food and your first reaction is "yuck" based on the looks of it.  I'm pretty sure, in this case, you didn't like what you tasted!  If you are feeding a loved one, take a moment to consider how you present them with food on a plate and what colors you add to a plate to help increase attractiveness.  I usually will add in just a colorful garnish to help round out the look of plate, please our "eyes" before we give our taste buds a chance at it.

Here's a great example of something that I KNEW I was going to love just by looking at it....This is from Gordon Ramsey's MAZE in London.  I remember this dinner from 3 years ago because of this dish!
