Presentation of food does matter. I learned that from Japanese friends. Japanese cuisine is so beautifully presented. It sets the diner’s tastes buds up of a delicious experience.
That’s one reason I’m not a fan of buffets. Regardless of how tasty the food is, it never looks appealing in the line and definitely not once on the plate.
Even though a friend’s mother would say that it didn’t really matter what it looked like since it all ends up in the same place. While she is correct, eating should involve more than one sense.
My only exception is Indian food. I think it looks so interesting with the colors and textures of vegetables and lentils.
We’re having snacks tonight for dinner while watching football. And even with snacks, I like to arrange the food in a nice manner. Makes it more appealing and pleasurable experience.
Is that what dining should be?
