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.
If you are serving a fruit salad you can use a pineapple to serve the salad instead of a regular glass or ceramic bowl. For this you need a medium-sized or large pineapple. Discard any brown or discolored leaves from the pineapple and trim the top. Cut the pineapple into two equal parts and cut a thin strip of the pineapple to make the base. Remove the core of the pineapple by using a serrated knife and scoop out the flesh from each half. You can use this pineapple bowl to hold a fruit salad or salsa.
Standard height tables have a formal appeal unlike the counter height tables that have more of a contemporary look. Hence, the latter is generally not the best choice for a formal dinner with the family, and other formal events. Also, if your house has a traditional theme, then it is best to opt for a standard height table.
Incorporate analogous colors into open concept space. While you want your feng shui dining space to be set apart from, say, the living room area, you also want the two (or more) common areas to be cohesive. One way to accomplish this is to use analogous colors (colors next to each other on the color wheel) to separate the spaces without visually dividing them.
