A good friend of mine, who is well experienced in the art of cooking, shared this quote with me recently. It is a very relevant quote and it’s also just a great way to describe the true experience of working with a chef to make your food taste great and most importantly, look great.
One of the best things about cooking is that it is a very visual act, and when you are looking at a dish, you are looking at the food. As a cook, I never really thought of the food as a dish. I was always more concerned with what the food was made of. That was the first part of the process – the second was the presentation. I try to present my dishes in the most artistic and aesthetically pleasing way I can.
The process of presenting food is as important as the food itself. I’m not talking about putting on a fancy dinner party here, I’m talking about a simple dinner party.
It’s all about presentation. If you can’t present your food well, you might as well just eat it.
Food presentation is one of the most important aspects of a good meal. If you prepare it poorly then its not as appetizing as it could be. The first step in preparing a meal is to make sure you have everything you need and then to make sure you present it in a way that makes it look good. Sometimes that means taking some time to select the right ingredients. Sometimes it means investing in a great presentation.
I think it is a very common misconception that people who have had lots of food experience are the ones to prepare. If you haven’t, you probably need to find a good cookbook. That’s because you need to make the food look good, not just cook it. That doesn’t mean you have to be a food stylist, just a good cook.
It’s not that we’re bad cooks but that we don’t have the experience to cook. That’s easy to say but difficult to do. The reason for this is that cooking is an art in itself and you will find the best recipes in cookbooks. A good cook will also have a lot of experience with food. And experience with food is the most important thing, not just the kitchen skills.
This is where the experience comes in. You will learn to cook from experience and you will only be disappointed if you don’t have that experience.
It is an unfortunate truth that cooks are rarely tested in the kitchen. One of the most important things a cook can do is to make sure that recipes they are using are the best. They are trained by their peers, and this is where most people fail to develop their cooking skills. The reason you will find that your cooking skills are ineffectual is because you are not tested. You will never learn the techniques that will save you in the kitchen if you are not tested.
This is where the saying, “well experienced cooks learn most from their failures” comes from. When you are in the kitchen, you will only see what your peers are doing. So if you are a cook, you will learn to see what others are using. You will see mistakes, and you will see what others are using and making the best out of it. You will learn from your mistakes, but it is your mistakes that will make you a better cook.
