My Favorite Dinner Party - all about cooking, dinning and great life style

 

 

Chris Grant presenting one of his dishes.The details of presentation are important and they are a foundation for serving and plating meals.

The details start with the planning of the table, setting the tableware, cutlery and glassware. The plating, presentation and the great moment of bringing in food and drink. My friend, and accomplished chef, Chris Grant always has those points down pat.

The setting of the table lays out a map for the meal. This won't help with one of the most common questions asked: "which is my bread & butter plate?" but the setting of the table gives you a pretty good idea of what is to come. Oh, the bread and butter plate is always to the left of the plate, the coffee/tea cup to the right.) I actually came across this reminder in an article in Hotel Online: "Drink has five letters and so does right. So your beverages are on your right-hand side" . "Food has four letters and so does left. So your bread plate is on your left."
