THE ART OF PLATING O'ER AT GILT TASTE



When Gilt Taste snapped up both Ruth Reichl and Francis Lam to helm its editorials, we should've known good things were in store, but their new "The Art of Plating" features have really knocked it out.

Each post in the series features a well-respected chef walking us through their own plating process as it pertains to a specific dish.  The series kicks off with Michael Laiskonis, former pastry chef at Le Bernardin and the Creative Director of the Institute of Culinary Education, walking us through three plates, with each description walking us through his creative process and detailing just how much work and thought goes into each one.  Remarkable.

  1. Interesting as these articles are they serve as a backdrop for absolutely ridiculous prices on the foods and gadgets they are trying to flog.
    $31 for a banana bread, $60 - 80 for fairly standard cakes?? (all shipped of course). And there are even more ridiculous examples of pricing geared towards pseudo-foodies with platinum cards.

    How long will they last?

  3. @saltheart: ha - I must admit that I also found the premise of Gilt Taste pretty ridiculous. But it sure was nice to see Ruth Reichl and Francis Lam with a regular gig for awhile!
