Yesterday, one of ICE’s own staff gave a unique demo on plating and dish presentation. Susie Noona works as part of ICE’s Special Events team and is famed here for her beautiful presentations and detailed garnishes on trays and plates of hors d’oeuvres. For the demo, she covered different techniques and ideas for plating. For example, she said, “Red and yellow are hypnotic colors. They make you want to eat.” Some of her other tips included keeping to odd numbers and always making sure the plate looked full. She talked about color, design, texture and how the plating and garnishes could best highlight the food.
