This Plate Will Have ANYthing Lookin Like A Snack.


 

Studies show that the color of the plate can often change your perception of how food tastes. For example, serving desserts on a white plate can enhance their sweetness by making their colors seem more saturated… and that tricks your brain into thinking they’re sweeter! In 1957 marketing pioneer Louis Cheskin reported that adding 15 percent more yellow to green in 7UP cans caused consumers to perceive the soft drink as having a more lemony-limey flavor. That’s probably why Sprite, although clear, comes in a colored bottle… or why desserts are designed to look so pretty. Appearance and plating can alter your perception of taste, and is a great way to improve the impact the food has on your pallet.

Now imagine you’ve got yourself a delicious tenderloin, and the option of a simple plastic plate, versus a gentle grill with burning embers below. Undoubtedly, a smokey, ember-y plate would help accentuate the steak’s flavor, while a boring plastic plate would simply be a blank canvas that wouldn’t do much to augment the steak’s taste. While you can’t set up a grill with burning embers every time you want to eat a steak, the Eatense plate helps set the ambiance.  The Eatense is a serving-plate with a dynamic display underneath. Built explicitly for serving food, the display is built to withstand heat and is water-proof, but most importantly, it helps create the perfect canvas for your meal. Whether it’s a bamboo texture for plating dimsums, or a decorative candy plate for a cake or a pastry, or even a chargrill for that steak, the Eatense makes your food look perfect, and taste perfect too.

 

The Eatense plate comes bundled with an Eatense app that lets you choose patterns, textures, or animations to display on the plate. You can even use the plate to guide people through a gastronomic experience by listing ingredients, or by telling people what to eat first. Conversely, the plate can also be customized to display a personalized text message like a birthday wish, the name of the person who ordered the food (like Starbucks for plates) or even a message from the chef. The plates are hermetically sealed and can be easily washed like regular dishes. They even come with a protective upper layer that resists heat and prevents scratching by cutlery. The plates charge wirelessly too, allowing you to dock them on their charging base when not in use.

Plating and presentation form a major part of the gastronomic experience, and can often be the difference between a great meal and an average one. The Eatense helps build the experience your food and your palate deserve, by being a powerful presentation tool. Ideal for restaurants, gatherings, special occasions, or even to gift friends who love cooking and food prep, the Eatense helps take food that one step further. By making desserts taste sweeter, salads taste fresher, meats taste smokier, and enhance the cultural and gastronomical relevance of any food you eat.

 

Eatense is the world’s first customizable plate. Equipped with a digital display and a smartphone app, it allows you to personalize your plate with tons of unique designs and photos.  With Eatense, you can plate food like a chef.  Well plated food looks delicious and brings out the joy of dining together.  Surprise your guests with a custom message during their meals and make special occasions even more memorable.  You can leave a message on the screen like, “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Mother’s Day,” and “I love you.”  Perfect for restaurants.  Eatense can display texts or food information on the screen. For instance, you can show your guests what the ingredients are and where they originate from. It enhances your guests’ dining experience.

What Is Pizzaoki?


Pastry hurling international dance icon Steve Aoki has decided to temporarily halt the on-stage cake throwing gimmick and pick up the dough roller. The 40-year superstar DJ/producer has just announced the opening of Pizzaoki in his hometown of Los Angeles. As the son of Benihana’s founder, who once told Yahoo Finance he has never received a penny from his father, the inventively named new restaurant seems like a fitting next move for the entrepreneurial mogul.

A themed restaurant in it’s conception, much like the theatrical Japanese chain started by his late father, Aoki says that customers will be able to enjoy quality pizza recipes named after his hit songs — for instance, a classic cheese dubbed “Just Hold On” or the “Mayhem,” a supreme with all the toppings. The new concept also relies heavily on technology for delivery, as Pizzaoki currently lacks a brick and mortar location. Customers can currently place orders through Postmates and Uber Eats.

When you hear the words “goose liver”, not too many pleasant images come to mind, and I highly doubt the picture above is one of them.   The beauty of plating food is that you can make art out of food, and yes, the photo above is actually goose liver.  I was attempting to plate some ground lamb, rice, and zucchini, recently, and I considered the difficulty involved with making food look as beautiful as it can for the people who will be eating it.  EliteTraveler has compiled a photo gallery of 10 of what they consider the most beautiful plates in the world.  Check the method.

Brussels Airlines Hires Michelin Starred Chef


Geert-Van-Hecke-600x898

Passengers on the Belgian airline will be able to savor a meal created by one of the top names in contemporary Belgian gastronomy: triple Michelin-starred chef Geert Van Hecke. The chef, who has presided over his Bruges restaurant De Karmeliet for over 30 years, has prepared a starter with smoked Damme eel, tarragon yogurt sauce and mashed fennel. This first course will be followed by a dish of “Bruge-style shrimp,” curried sweet potatoes and steamed snow peas. Flemish beer and cheese will accompany the meal. This menu will be offered to business class passengers on long-haul flights leaving from Brussels for destinations in Africa or the US. The collaboration with Geert Van Hecke is the first in a series of tie-ups in Brussels Airlines’ “Belgian Star Chefs” initiative. Every four to five months, the company will invite a different celebrity chef to renew its business class menu with gourmet dishes based on seasonal, regional ingredients.

Luxury Songjiang Hotel under Waterfall in China


general

Atkins has won an international competition to design a five-star resort hotel set within a beautiful water-filled quarry in the Songjiang district close to Shanghai in China. Its stunning concept designs inspired by the natural water and landscape features of the quarry captured the imagination of judges to quash competition from two other international firms. The innovative design of 400-bed resort hotel stands two levels higher that the rock face of the 100 meter deep quarry and includes underwater public areas and guestrooms. It will incorporate conference facilities for up to 1,000 people, a banqueting centre, restaurants, cafes and sports facilities. Sustainability is integral to the design ranging from using green roofing for the structures above the ground level to geothermal energy extraction. An aquatic theme runs through the design both visually and functionality. Two underwater levels will house a restaurant and guestrooms facing a ten-meter deep aquarium. The lowest level of the hotel will contain a leisure complex with a swimming pool and water-based sports. An extreme sports centers for activities such as rock climbing and bungee jumping will be cantilevered over the quarry and accessed by special lifts from the water level of the hotel.
