Training Workshop 07 till 09 July'12
The Egyptian Chefs Association is organizing a 3-day intensive training workshop "Plate Presentation & Set Menu Techniques" in Hurghada Marriott Beach Resort.
Presentation is important because people "Eat with their Eyes" first. An appetizing plate of food that smells delicious, looks as good as it smells, and clearly demonstrates proper cooking methods will be winner with customers. Presentation in the culinary sense refers to the balance, contrast, and visual impact of a plate of food that has been cooked properly and served. Although the course is marked as theoretical because there is no cooking involved, practical sessions will teach students the techniques of plate composition. For a better understanding of the topic a slide show will also illustrate samples of good and not so good plate presentations.
The structure of the workshop will cover the following topics:
- Guidelines and rules in plate presentation
- Main components of food presentation such as balance, color, shape, height, texture, layout, serviceability and flow
- Plate arrangement and decoration
- Functional and non-functional garnishes
- From conceptual design to plate development
The training workshop will be conducted in Arabic by Chef Essam Sayed, Executive Chef of Hurghada Marriott Beach Resort & Chairman of ECA Red Sea Chefs Chapter. Training manuals and test are available in English and Arabic. Upon successful completion of test participants will receive an ECA certificate.
