GARNISHING

GARNISHING is like lighting the candles on a cake. Such a simple gesture illuminates so brightly. You need not take special instruction to garnish effectively. Simple, colorful shapes make beautiful garnishes and can be made from nearly all fruits and vegetables: strips of pimento, green pepper, carrot, tomato or scallion placed over a dish; thinly sliced tomato or pickle arranged in fan formation; a fruit wedge or slice placed to the side; fresh herbs sprinkled over (please however, never sprinkle dried herbs over a dish for any reason unless they’re in powder form.); olives and cucumber slices; tomato or lemon wedges dipped in chopped fresh herbs; sprigs of fresh herbs, flowers, and on and on. Be creative and invent your own.
