(Some class participants making homemade raspberry sauce for plate garnish: simple techniques to upscale appetizers)
Last week I had a great time sharing presentation secrets at a hands-on workshop. Participants learned simple techniques from The Pretty Plate to make their meals look like they came from a high-end restaurant. With Christmas and New Year right around the corner I thought I would share my favorite easy holiday appetizer and some simple techniques to upscale appetizers.
This Walnut-Crusted Cheese Canape, better known in my family as a cheese log, is so simple, very tasty and can even be made in advance and frozen ready for any last-minute guests or party. This recipe is an old family favorite that I re-worked using one of the 5 Elements of the Pretty Plate. By rethinking the shape and how to serve this item, it went from an ugly mess to an upscale appetizer.
See how simple techniques of the Pretty Plate can make all the difference. Learn how to use the 5 Elements of the Pretty plate to make your everyday meals magnificent! Get the book here.
