Beautiful Food Presentation

Apple _desert _wide

By Sheila Samuels

I'm a firm believer in the thought that we eat with our eyes first. Presentation of food is therefore a vital part of the event design process.

There's a good reason why the top caterers invest lots of time and money in creating dishes that are visually appealing. Great food presentation can lift the atmosphere at any event. It can spark great conversation amongst a group of guests who otherwise may have been engaging in banal small talk before they were served the first course.

Regular guests at corporate dinners or weddings can tire easily from the same old food being presented just as blandly as the previous event. Beautiful food, stylistically presented, can be the difference between them having positive thoughts about the event or merely thinking ‘so what’.

Thinking Outside The Box

I’ve been privileged to work with some fine chefs over the years. Like me, they take presentation extremely seriously. And whilst great presentation isn’t a substitute for poor quality food, it can certainly make great food taste even better. 

One thing that's always excited me, is the willingness of very top chefs to use some of our own hire products such as charger plates and glasses to compliment their dishes.
