The Art of Garnishing Your Food
When preparing for a meal, your dishes may lack some simple special touches that make their appearance attractive and irresistible. Here are 3 easy ways to garnish your dishes that are quick and effortless.
when using sauces, the key is not to overdo it, it needs to be enough to add a design to the food/platter and to enhance the taste of the dish by adding some flavor. Example of sauces that you could use with your desserts is the American Garden Chocolate Syrup that could be used as decoration for the dessert or you could use American Garden U.S Ketchup for decorating meats when serving them.
One way of doing this, is by applying polka dots using Ketchup and mustard on the side of the plate, then using a small stick, walk a line between those dots and it will look like each dot attached to the other one.
Herbs could be used to complete the dish. If the herb is used within the dish, it enhances the taste and makes the flavor richer. Herbs give an attractive touch to your dishes as well, especially with chicken and meat dishes. Make sure to prepare before serving the dish to maintain their fresh flavor if it as it is sprinkled on the surface. It can be sprinkled in a scattered form on the plate edges, or shaping a circular line with it.
Lemon is one of the best types of citrus to decorate fish and rice dishes. It adds a taste and flavor a lot of dishes, and it can also be used to decorate the meals that do need lemon to be eaten with it. Lemon could be added to your meal by cutting them into slices by placing them surrounding the platter or on top of the dish.
