Garnish your meals
For those who love to entertain or just want their culinary masterpieces to look as good as they taste, the art of plating your food, as many top chefs attest, is nearly as important as the flavor.
Here are five of the most useful, and beautiful, methods of garnishing virtually any entree, according to www.chefseanbone.com: A sprig of rosemary or mint: A great option for meat dishes, soups or anything where you need a little green.
Sliced lemon or lime: A classic method that is often overlooked.
Dried chilies: A perfect visual compliment to any southwestern meal.
A drizzle of sauce: A few drops or splashes of a colorful sauce help fill in the empty parts of a plate.
Grated cheese: Not only can grated cheese bring out a lovely flavor, it also adds texture and style.
