TIP OF THE DAY: Glamorous Garnishing

Remember when a garnish meant parsley? Today, part of the creativity in cooking is the choice of edible garniture. Just a bit of garnish makes any plate look better.

Try whole or halved cherry or grape tomatoes or actual grapes, caperberries with stems (or scatter small capers on the plate), beads of whitefish caviar, edible flowers….There are dozens of tasty choices whether your course is sweet or savory.

So whether you’re presenting the turkey, yams, stuffing, cranberries or other dishes tomorrow, consider whether sprigs of rosemary, orange peel, dill or other garnish (yes, even parsley) can make them even more of a visual “wow.”
