Plating Demo with Chef Him Uy de Baron
It was my second time witnessing Chef Him Uy de Baron, considered to be one of the top chef's in the country today. The first time was in a cooking show.
This time, Chef Him Uy de Baron demonstrated his plating skills using the latest collection from Luminarc. According to him, plating is essential to any food such it will appear more palatable. In any presentation it is but important to consider the following: texture, color, height, and contrast.
Another tip: Chef mentioned, he prefers to work with white plates. Its just like working on a very clean canvas.
On this occasion, since it was Mother's Day, four lucky moms from the audience were selected to work together with Chef Him Uy de Baron and were given a chance to create with their own style.
The dishes presented were salad/appetizer, pasta, meat and desert.
Following are the creations made by Chef de Baron himself.
Luminarc, also presented the latest in their Dinnerware Collection. You can choose from either colorful florals or classic black & white.
The Floral Series:
Intricately placed stalks of pink flowers form a soothing vertical garden on the dinnerware. Anemone will no doubt heighten your dining senses as it brings out the flavor of home cooked food.
Bouton D'or is inspired by the lovely yellow buttercup flower! Its bright and lively flowers will definitely give that extra touch of warmth to your dining table. Ideal for this summer.
Sweet girly ribbon bow, butterflies and flowers in a wide array of colors adorn this collection - one of the most colorful designs in the series.
Daliane is a revisit of a classic Luminarc design. Blue peony flowers combined with geometric floral on their classic Feston shaped plate exudes a subtle feeling of warmth, familiarity and comfort when dining.
A play of green shades sets Green Ode apart from the other dinnerware designs. Large green floral motifs in photographic prints decorate the plates giving this floral range a modern touch.
Luminarc has another set of collection which is called "The Classic Series". I will feature them in another post.
The Luminarc dinner collection is: fully tempered, extra resistant (3 times stronger than normal glass, 100% hygienic (as glass is a non-reactive material and does not absorb any substance), resistant to high temperature variance, dishwasher and microwave safe, and easily stackable.
