Garnishing Lab Day 2

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?IMG_2664They found the bamboo skewer to be useful when creating webs.

They also learned the importance of having a clean plate when serving  the elite.

We made grilled cheese and students practiced the garnishes with carrot curls or other skills they remember.

I really like this one.IMG_2654

Last was butter curls which required some technique to make a full pretty butter curl for toast points.

Lovely butter curls.

A great day of garnishing with Foods 2 students.
