Food, like fashion, follows trends. It seems as though suddenly, there is a food or dish on everyone’s radar, showing up on menus and instagram feeds galore. Sometimes it is an ingredient, like avocado, or sundried tomatoes. Often, it is a preparation or an ethnic specialty that catches on, like poké. One trend that keeps catching our eye, is related to the presentation, rather than the food itself.
Asymmetry seems to be the trick of the moment, making for a very modern, artsy approach to plating. From pristine placements to a more rustic feel, the one-sided look is popping up on cakes, pies, acai bowls and nouvelle cuisine plates, giving new meaning to the phrase,” I’ll have mine on the side.”
