here is a gorgeous and light cooking idea for lockdown summers; elegant corn salad in cucumber boats. every day is Sunday right now so why not treat yourself to a dainty culinary piece of art. i sincerely believe that we eat first with our eyes, then with our nose and lastly with our mouth.

colours of food

colour plays a major role in vegetarian food. food is so colourful. and if the presentation and plating are attractive then you are in for a scrumptious delight. textures and shapes too play a role. if the food is not matched properly then you can end up with a jumbled mass. shapes come from how you design the food and then the garnishing, finally the plating. if your porcelain plate is chipped it is surely going to put you off.
