How can I learn how to plate prettier?

WtotheN | Sep 29, 2010 02:11 PM

Any sources (ideally online) for a non-artistic person to learn how to plate better?

I'm not great with plating. Always feels like the plate doesn't look as good as the food tastes! I regularly host dinner parties in my home, and I like to do a lot of different courses -- sadly, I usually end up with 5-7 courses of just the food in the center of the plate because I have no idea how to nicely arrange things or put a decorative garnish or sauce somewhere.

Anyone on CH an artistic plater? Tell me your secrets!
