Everyone appreciates a great spread of food, but it is even more impressive when time and care has been taken to decorate food displays with edible art in the form of carved fruits and vegetables. Garnishing tools are essential for creating a great display of food and art mixed together.
Garnishes can be something as simple as a lemon curl and as complex as an entire animal sculpted from various fruits and vegetables. The art of garnishing and creating edible centerpieces (that no one will actually want to spoil by eating) is best learned when you are considering starting a catering business. Catering is as much about presentation as it is about creating delicious food your clients will love.
Start by learning the basics of how to garnish by learning how to create a lemon curl and carve a rose from a radish and then go from there. Sign up for local classes to learn how to create more complex cuts and designs. Once you are comfortable with your skills, invest in a proper garnishing tools kit and get practicing. Once you have mastered the skills that are taught by others, begin branching out and using these skills to create your own beautiful designs.
