Although I love to cook and feed people, I will readily admit that I have no talent in “plating” – presenting a dish that is composed, beautiful and picture-perfect. I do try but don’t seem to have the knack so I appreciate it when I see it done well.
I am in Vancouver for work this weekend and was just out at a lunch meeting. When this dish of Biodynamic Risotto, Side Stripe Prawns, Preserved Lemon & Tarragon was placed in front of me, I just had to take a photo to preserve the moment. And believe me, it tasted even better than it looked!
One of the things that my sister and I both try to do whenever we visit Vancouver is to have seafood at least once a day. You can get great seafood in Toronto and London but there is just something about enjoying seafood in a city that is right on the ocean. So prawns today, who knows what tomorrow and Sunday will bring?
Do you have any tips on plating that you are willing to share?
