Platter artistry is very much a creative outlet for us, as we both love food and making things look pretty. We have been doing this while juggling full-time jobs, but it has been so worthwhile; seeing people happy makes us happy.
Think colour, textures and variety in food. We love buying fresh colourful fruits and vegetables to give a platter colour. Make sure you use fresh seasonal produce to really ensure the platter is looking fresh. To add texture to a platter, look for an assortment of different foods. For a variety of foods, it might be helpful to think in threes; for example: three types of cheeses, three types of fruit and three types of meat. But don't restrict yourself! The beauty of platters is that you can customise them however you want.
We like trying out different types of cuisines and food and beautiful florals. We also love learning about different pairings.
Nope, we enjoy variety – even if we don't love it, we're sure one of your guests will. It's all about providing variety but including a good balance of foods.
Colourful platters – these will never go out of fashion! We also love seeing different cheese pairings with honey. In general, we are seeing a lot of lunch items or meals presented in a deconstructed way and served on platters.
You can't go wrong with a selection of fresh vege sticks with the classic onion dip. This will help balance the platter, and add a refreshing element to your meal.
Cheeses, crackers, purple grapes, salami, and a squirt of honey!
Our large mixed platters with a bit of everything. They're bound to be a crowd-pleaser with something for everyone.
