  42. 43. FOOD DISPLAY
  43. 44. SENSES AND PALATE <ul><li>When enjoying the pleasures of eating food, all senses play a large role. </li></ul><ul><li>SENSE OF SIGHT is the initial organ that is used. </li></ul><ul><li>( If the food looks good, then generally it will taste good.) </li></ul><ul><li>SENSE OF SMELL is the second sensory gland that is utilised. </li></ul><ul><li>( Just by an item of food smelling good stimulates the saliva glands creating the feeling of hunger.) </li></ul>
  44. 45. <ul><li>SENSE OF HEARING plays a large roll in eating food. </li></ul><ul><li>(The sound of steak sizzling on the BBQ or the crunch of fresh apples stimulates the thought process generating the feeling of hunger.) </li></ul><ul><li>SENSE OF TASTE is the biggest sensory gland that stimulates the appetite and generates the fulfilment and pleasure through eating. </li></ul>SENSES AND PALATE
  45. 46. THE PALATE <ul><li>The TONGUE , also known as the PALATE , is divided up into four sensory zones:  </li></ul>
  46. 47. FOOD PRESENTATION <ul><li>When presenting food, there are many aesthetic characteristics that need to be taken into consideration: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>COLOUR </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>TEXTURE </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>VARIETY </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ARRANGEMENT . </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>If the food has eye appeal and looks good, then generally it will taste good. </li></ul>
  47. 48. COLOUR <ul><li>Is a very big characteristic of food presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Diners know what colour certain foods should be, therefore expect these foods to be served this colour. </li></ul><ul><li>More contrasting colours create more eye appealing food. </li></ul><ul><li>If food is all the one colour, then diners will find the food unattractive and therefore will not enjoy their meal. </li></ul>
  48. 49. <ul><li>Getting to know the elements of the colour wheel, i.e. what colours are classified as primary and secondary will assist in presenting an attractive display of food. </li></ul><ul><li>You should also become familiar with the complimentary, adjacent and monochromatic colour schemes. </li></ul>COLOUR
  49. 50. COLOUR WHEEL <ul><li>Primary colours include RED , YELLOW and BLUE . </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary colours include VIOLET , ORANGE and GREEN </li></ul><ul><li>(combination of two primary colours). </li></ul><ul><li>Complimentary schemes e.g. Red and Green </li></ul><ul><li>(opposite on the colour wheel), </li></ul><ul><li>Adjacent schemes e.g.. Green and Yellow </li></ul><ul><li>(side by side on the colour wheel). </li></ul><ul><li>Monochromatic schemes e.g. Tint — Pink ( Red and White ) </li></ul><ul><li> Shade — Maroon ( Red and Black) </li></ul><ul><li>(tints have white added to one primary colour while shades have black added to one primary colour). </li></ul>
  50. 51. COLOUR WHEEL Orange Yellow Green Aqua Blue Mauve Purple Red
  51. 52. TEXTURE <ul><li>If the food a customer is being served is not up to their expectations then they will not be satisfied. </li></ul><ul><li>If the customer is expecting their food to be crispy or smooth, then their food should live up to the these expectations, i.e. </li></ul><ul><li>(if the pastry of a tart is meant to be crunchy then it should be crunchy if a custard should be smooth then it should not have any lumps in it.) </li></ul>
  52. 53. <ul><li>The texture also plays a large role in the clientele that you are serving. </li></ul><ul><li>(If dietary requirements require food to be served soft due to old age, then you will not serve hard and crunchy food items.) </li></ul><ul><li>Texture also has significance to the freshness of the food you are displaying and serving. </li></ul><ul><li>(If you serve celery stalks that are wilted and soft, it will indicate to the customer that your food is not fresh and therefore not appetising.) </li></ul>TEXTURE
  53. 54. VARIETY <ul><li>The more selections that the customers have to choose from, the more appetising the food will look. </li></ul><ul><li>On a canapé platter, four or five options will be more appealing and colourful as apposed to only one or two choices. </li></ul><ul><li>Garnishing is a big part of providing a variety to your presentation. Having individual garnishes for different dishes distinguishes each dishes characteristics. </li></ul>“ Variety is the spice of life”
  54. 55. <ul><li>There are a number of options that can be adapted to provide variety to presentation, these options can include the use of: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>An array of different foods. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Different shapes and cuts. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Different textures and colours. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Different displays, e.g. cheese boards, chocolate fountains or fondues. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Different flavours and temperatures. </li></ul></ul></ul>VARIETY
  55. 56. ARRANGEMENT <ul><li>There are certain characteristics or rules that need to be followed when arranging food. </li></ul><ul><li>These characteristics include: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Height of the dish. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Technicalities of the dish. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Textures and colours. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Food choices or options. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Type of dish i.e. soup or steak. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cutlery and crockery being used. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The garnish that will be used. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  56. 57. <ul><li>When arranging food to be presented, it should: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be arranged neatly and attractively. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Have height and air present throughout the food. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Not be served in a pile in the middle of the plate. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Not be any spillages or finger prints around the rim of the plate. </li></ul></ul></ul>ARRANGEMENT
  57. 58. <ul><li>When arranging food, think of it as a piece of art and the plate or platter your canvas. </li></ul><ul><li>The rim of the plate is known as the border and therefore all of food should be presented within the border. </li></ul><ul><li>When arranging platters of canapés, look for different shapes, colours and textures. </li></ul><ul><li>Platters should be presented in neat rows with different food items present on each platter. </li></ul>ARRANGEMENT
  58. 59. PLANNING  
  59. 61. <ul><li>Along with organising your courses, menus and costing, the next major aspect of planning a function is to establish a venue. When looking at a venue, there are several considerations that need to be taken into account. These considerations involve the facilities that are available to you at each venue, these facilities include: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>In determining the facilities available, you can then investigate into what is needed to be hired or organised from an outside source.
