Style In Everything
Presentation matters. We don't just eat with our mouths, we also eat with our eyes. Presenting a meal with style enhances the culinary experience.
A few months ago I bought some pretty yellow dishes at West Elm. I didn't realize at the time how much they'd brighten my meals. The attractive color surrounds my food with sunlight. Best of all, the dishes were on sale and remarkably cheap.
Here's my snack for today. Caviar, on sour cream, on Carr's Table Water Crackers. I love the flavor of caviar but its saltiness needs to be cut with something smooth. Sour cream (or cream cheese) serves that purpose. And, for the base, nothing beats Carr's crackers. They're sturdy and make plain taste a virtue. They serve what you place on them without interfering with its flavor.
Do you put any effort into how you present your food?
