The art of food presentation is an important part of our food service industry. Before guests have the chance to taste the food placed before them or select from a buffet, they first sample the food with their eyes. This visual sampling sets a mood for the very first bite. If a very positive visual sampling has taken place, the guest's frame of mind would be one of positive anticipation. sampling sets the mood for the first bite.

If, however, a below-average visual sampling has taken place, this frame of mind might be the complete opposite. The following examples and illustrations should help you design and present plates and platters that keep your guests coming back for more.
