Garnishing has many skills to cover including plate painting with chocolate sauce.
Students were carving a melon basket with a paring knife and using the melon baller. Why not add the fruit to the pretty plates?They found the bamboo skewer to be useful when creating webs.
They also learned the importance of having a clean plate when serving the elite.
Our melon basket was coming along thanks to Rod and Annie.
Citrus being pared.
Here’s our frugal way of practicing garnishing sandwiches on the side.
We made grilled cheese and students practiced the garnishes with carrot curls or other skills they remember.
I really like this one.
Last was butter curls which required some technique to make a full pretty butter curl for toast points.
Lovely butter curls.
Learning to use the v-cutter was more difficult than students imagined. We opted for the smallest paring knife we have on hand.
A great day of garnishing with Foods 2 students.
