Art on a Plate: 10 Beautiful Food Presentations From Around the World

beautiful food presentation

When it comes to food, looks matter. A lot. I’m not alone when it comes to judging a meal by its cover. Research shows that even just looking at food photos can influence taste perception.

Some chefs take the visual component to another level, creating works of art on their plates. I selected 10 of my favorites that I’ve enjoyed over the past few months in restaurants around the world.

1. COMPARTIR, CADAQUES, GIRONA, SPAIN
