Professional Food Styling Program: Rice and Pasta Afternoon

After we all grabbed lunch at DEC, it was time to do something a bit more complicated. Rice and Pasta are pretty tricky if you don’t have much ideas in mind. Plating wise, no one wants to see a messy slop of pasta and goo, unless that’s the look you’re going for which most magazines and food companies here aren’t into.

Rice can dry up, stick too much together, or just misbehave and crumble. Pasta is complicated in a way that you have control about the lines it creates…so it’s really up to you if you want curves, horizontal, vertical or slanting lines on your plate. But I guess it is about knowing how to handle both, and to keep it looking like it just came out of the oven/pan.

But they seemed to have come through with wonderful ideas and styling, not bad for first timers. πŸ™‚
