I decided to learn how to decorate my dinner plate so the plate's presentation looks good and tempting that people would want to eat the food I cooked. Many years ago, I was dating this guy, saying it's all on how you present it. He used to tell me if you want people to eat what you made, you have to decorate your plate with food, so when you present the plate, it looks very tempting with the presentation. I never understood that and always questioned why because it's the food that people eat, not the presentation. For the past few years, my little sister moved in for a year, and she took over the kitchen and cooking. Every time she would serve me food, my plate full of food would look very pretty, and it would make me very happy while I would eat it. No matter what she made, she, her presentation of the plating, would look very beautiful. After a few months, I started to notice that, and that when my ex's word made sense to me. "It's all in the presentation." So from that day, I started watching her how she would begin decorating the plate and how I looked forward to her presentation. I learned how to proportion each plate with carrots, beans, spinach, rice, mash potatoes in each corner, and the meat either in the middle or side. Whatever or, However, she felt the presence of the plate would look good. I learned something new that day, and every day from there until she left, I learned how to set the plate with all the things she would cook for that day or night. After she left, mom took overcooking, and with mom, she would cook without any presentation, just simple and ready to eat. My mom may have the same thinking as me, right! Why? It's what you eat, not how the plate looks. But now that mom decided to travel and visit my two other sisters. I am left home alone to cook my meal. I figured now is the time to get hands-on and start trying the plate presentation.
