dish3_960x320-001.jpgAlex Stupak explains his presentation philosophy: "Typically you’re taught two things in plating. One is that an herb or leaf should always be facing up. “Show the guest what the plant shows the world,” my teachers used to say. I’ve never been a big fan of it. The other is that the rim of the plate should frame the food...It’s important to me to show that I understand the rules but I also don’t care." He also shares some great step-by-step food porn.
