You know that great gift wrap makes a gift more exciting. It’s the same with food, but the “wrapping” is the dish and the garnish. The finest restaurants match the plate to the food being served.

  • Buy dinner plates in solid colors or versatile patterns and find smaller plates in rectangular and square shapes for first courses and desserts. (We look for closeouts.)
  • Find an artistic garnish for each plate—a few strands of chive, a squash blossom, even a bright red chili pepper (with an announcement that it’s just there for design).
  •  
    If you’re artistic, there are books on vegetable garniture where you can indulge your talent for carving to create edible masterpieces for each plate:

  • The Art Of Garnishing
  • The Book Of Garnishes
  • Food Art: Garnishing Made Easy
  • Garnishing: A Feast For Your Eyes
  •  
    Take a look at our article, Garnish Glamour, which has dozens of ideas for sweet and savory foods.
