My food is prittymuch 'cook, dump on plate, eat'. Don't really care what something looks like as long as it tastes good. And I don't have much sence of taste as I'm somewhat anosmc, I have a poor sence of smell.

On photographey, natural light is always a good thing.

Jil, that pie looks awesome.

Mmmm, pork curry sounds freakin' delicious, Jeanne!! Nicely done, too :thumbsup: I'll have to try some!

And thanks, peeps! ^.^

Here's a dish I made for our "blackbox exam" (improvisation) near the end of second semester. It's turkey scallopini with allemande sauce, blanched green beans, and a tomato mix ^.^

Your plating of the food is very well done. It really makes the food look irresistible. I hope you plan on keeping up with your culinary skills, Jill, even though you said you planned on majoring in writing.

Speaking of plating - Jill, do you choose the dishes based on the food that will be served on them? I recently read a summary of a study that found correlation between the perceived flavor of a food and the dish's color, shape, etc. I don't remember a lot of it, but they said that people tended to perceive bitter tastes more in foods served on square dishes.

Looks delicious, Jill, but it's only three bites, it looks like. XD

@ Jeanne: Aww, thanks, lova! I am definitely still cooking to this day and I keep everything I learned in mind when I do. Culinary taught me a lot (though I know there's still SO much more to learn!) and I think I love and appreciate food more because of it. It was one of the best learning experiences of my life so far ^.^ Also, you're awesome!! :manhug:

@IzzyB: Thanks!! :) And I have never heard of that before myself. The study sounds like it was conducted by really picky eaters IMO :rofl: but to answer your question, no, we did not get to choose the shape or colour of our plates. White, square plates (at least over here) are traditionally used for fine dining or a higher style of service. Also, the square edges and grooves allow for cooks and servers to hold and carry them in a way that won't tarnish or smudge the surface of the dish so there's almkst no need to wipe or clean again. Who wants to see a slimy finger print next to their meal after all? ;) Food safety is imperitive. It's just how it is, and personally I like the square-ness!! XD

I'm interested in this study, though. Got a link? :)

@ Bat: Haha, thanks! And I believe it 'looks' small because it was an appetizer ;) Also (again, at least over here) it is for health and convenience (but mostly health) of the public that we watch our portion sizes and be sure we don't overdo it. Less is sometimes more.

FOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!! <3

My mother and her friend Fumi booked a stay at a Japanese inn specializing in kaiseki cuisine during our vacation in Japan. If you like tiny portions served on elegantly beautiful doll sized plates, then I recommend it.

I, however, being a raised in America gaijin style person felt constantly hungry during our stay at that inn. I wanted to ask for a Super Size portion. Maybe that's why Japanese are not as fat as most Americans. lol
