Berlin Food Week Started and it is Awesome so far. I got invited to a Workshop at the Miele Gallery called: "The Art Of Plating" by Thomas Elstermeyer. Exciting!
When I got in, I was welcomed by Thomas (while he was doing the mise en place) and the hostess with a glass of bubbles. It was a colorful bunch, from food connoisseurs, food bloggers, potato lovers and more.
For Thomas, not only the art of plating is important or the food on the plates, but the plates themselves. There was a huge amount of beautiful plates in different forms and colors made by Thomas himself!
We sat down and the workshop started. Next to me was Su from Fraeuleinchen (We met last month when we cooked for Factory Berlin at the event Cook it Share it Like it) and the Potato Squad: Dominik & Rachel and we had a blast!
Besides great conversations, we learnt that dishes are more than taste and they should also "tickle" your eyes as well.
Every guest got to help plating and I have to say, I learnt loads of stuff. Not only about presentation but how to make things like tomato water and puff rice. After 10 delicious and beautiful servings, our heads and tummies were full with creative ideas and food.
It was a great evening, enjoying riesling, learning, meeting new people and eating amazing food. I cant wait to see if today's event will be as cool as this one.. but it will be hard to top!
Here some behind the scenes from the Art of Plating. Bare with me and my video skills :)
