If you had the choice, would you rather have a big kitchen to cook in or a big dining room with plenty of space for friends to sit around the table and kibitz? It's a tough one, and we turned to our fellow New Yorkers to see what they had to say.
Have you ever been presented with a plate of food at a restaurant which made you go "wow" even without your tasting the dish. This is because the plating and presentation of the dish was harmonious and well balanced which instantly made the dish more appealing and exciting. A well presented plate of food enhances the dining experience. Professional chefs and fine dining restaurants will have you believe that creating such beautiful plates of food requires years of skill. But with a bit of imagination you too can present great looking dishes. Creative food presentation ideas are those in which there is a balance of color, texture and shapes. The plate on which the dish is presented should be proportional to the size of the dish. To make your dish aesthetically appealing there should be a combination of two or three colors on the plate. Pan roasted Sea Bass with roasted heirloom tomatoes and arugula salad looks much more appetizing than poached chicken with mashed potatoes. When you are serving meat and poultry, try accompanying it with steamed or sauted vegetables to add a dash of color. Garnishes in the form of chopped parsley, coriander and chives can also be used to introduce color to the dish.
But if you love bold colors and still want a feng shui design in your dining space, consider a compromise: use the colors in smaller scale accessories, such as centerpieces, dining room window treatments, dining textiles such as tablecloths and napkins, or even the dishes themselves.
Here, three interior design experts offer ideas on designing dining rooms that mix serious style with smooth function, and encourage holiday guests to linger over a memorable meal.
