Garnishing tip and techniques for food: Be unconventional, use a stencil

A beautifully crafted dish can flirt with your senses to create an emotional response that is both captivating and romantic. The sense of sight has to do with the sense of taste. Believe it or not, the look of a dish can make it more delicious. It's psychological. Science has proved that the nose and mouth are connected to the eyes which is connected to the brain.

So, welcome to our first post of Garnishing tips and techniques for Indian food - a weekly showcase of ideas for decorating food, presentation techniques, and tips for garnishing!

Today's post features Nazarina A from GiddyGastronome. Naz is my personal favorite blogger when it comes to making food look pretty with style and color. Check out her blog yourself if you don't believe me! You will be in awe. Naz says she doesn't have any rules where presentation and garnishing are concerned. She will use just about anything to complement the main dish. The edgier and the more unconventional the better! Truly, I can see this does work!

Today, Naz presents one unconventional style for food decoration. Her entry for Garnishing tips and techniques for Indian food is Butterscotch almond thumbprint with balloon. She used a stencil(!) and some cocoa powder!
I have no doubt that these taste great. I am confident that kids will particularly love to eat these cookies because how cute they look.
Thank you Naz for being kind enough to willingly share your style secret!

Through Garnishing tips and techniques we endeavor to project myriad and fascinating ways to make food look more appealing. As a part of this series, every week we will present an exciting and new garnishing style from fellow foodies around the globe. Here is to our first post. Stay tuned for many more ahead!
