Help! Questions about those beautiful classy fancy foods!

HawtLeak | Mar 11, 2010 07:25 PM

Hi there,

I've also loved those beautiful decorated foods... the big plates, small portions, but very creatively decorated. Mostly exists in fine-dining restaurants. What are those called? Culinary art? Like are there different synonyms?

I wanna try to find books about it at bookstore but i realized i didnt know what keywords to put on the search engine. Also online when im home...

I wanna learn how to cook those stuff n decorate them at home, i just love them. Where can I find techniques on how to decorate? also, u know those fancy desserts always have different textures... like lets say a cheesecake and then this piece of chocolate thingy sticking on top of it upright vertically.. how do i make those stuff? how do i make those swirl decorations made out of chocolate?

do you guys have recommended websites where i can study/view them? any sites that have a collection of beautiful fancy fine dining foods? any recommended books totally about it?

for those of you chefs who actually cook these beautiful foods, what are the top 3 things that inspire you to create new meals? why do you love doing it? where do you find ideas to arrange the "art"?
