Future Chefs Cookoff 2010 Photos Part II
This, in our opinion, was the most elegant plate of the day.
We begin today's series of photos with what, in my opinion, was a standout among standouts. When it comes to design I have always been a minimalist believing that less is often more. I love simplicity, without the gimmicks. So, when I saw this plate I immediately knew I had found my favorite. It is understated, elegant, showcases the food and flavors and uses color and design elements wisely. The plate not only looks beautiful but that custard is practically jumping into my mouth. That is talent. A+ on this one, although there were many great choices.
The Future Chefs begin to assemble their plates. One will be for tasting and one for presentation.
