It's all about the BOWL!
“Presentation” is what I'm reminding you about in today's blog.
We all know how important it is to present yourself for important occasions. We set the stage and our audience's expectations by “making a good first impression” and “capturing attention.”
Why? Because what we have to say is important. Our point in being at that location is significant.
In a way, so it is with our meals together. The point, of course, is our mutual sharing of food, but it will speak more forcefully if served on an appropriate stage.
Lately, Ive found myself enamoured of the chunky, artsy “bowl.” I'm a cruiser of TJ Maxx Homegoods and Marshall's and thrift stores and “junk-tiques.” It's amazing the wonderful, mismatched, one-or-two of a kind objects of art you can uncover. And when put together, they create a collection, right?
I am going to show you a number of photos of typical “bowl meals” and some meals you might not have thought about serving in a bowl, but they end up displaying so well, you might find yourself trying it.
Pasta with a Chicken- Mushroom Sauce
Roast Beef with garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed greens
Burrito Casserole with a dollop of sour cream
Curried Chicken with sauteed kale and Raita (cucumber salad)
I think you get the idea--and maybe you'll try your next dinner in an artsy bowl, too!
