"Surpassing any garnishing book we've seen, this shows how to craft fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, dried mushrooms, [and] dairy products into eye-catching table decorations, all using ordinary implements...of interest to caterers or aspiring party givers."--World of Cookbooks
Tomato flowers, filled pepper bowls, apple boats, herb bundles--these are just a few of the 200 garnishing ideas displayed on these colorful pages. Each one is a work of art that makes a meal beautiful to behold, as well as delicious to eat. And, surprisingly, they're all simple to make. Fresh basil leaves encircle a bowl of tomato soup, like petals framing a flower. With just a normal paring knife, an ordinary red onion blossoms into a chrysanthemum. Butter looks better molded into ornaments, including a rose or a shell. From drinks decorated with peel spirals to pretty chocolate boxes, every garnish in this collection is a tasty visual masterpiece.
