Plating is something I need to work on. I only became interested in cooking a little over a year ago, so up until this point it's been more about making sure things came out the way they were supposed to. Now that I'm a little more confident in that sense, I want my dishes to look as good as they (should) taste. I agree that it's a good idea to discuss plating in each individual recipe's thread rather than making a new forum devoted to that alone. It seems like the recipe and its presentation should be taken into account at the same time; adding a separate forum might make it harder to find creative plating ideas as easily.
Speaking of people who take pics of their dishes, I can't help but notice that gorgeous flan avatar. Kitchenelf - did you make that? Or was it just so pretty that you had to use it?
I just started a thread with questions about flan preparation. . . maybe you could take a look? Please please please? Thanks! :)
