With a good understanding of techniques, the reader will then learn plating techniques for salads, sandwiches, hors d' oeuvres, appetizers, entrees, and desserts. In this new edition,#xA0;information on global cuisines will be#xA0;intergrated throughout the chapters and recipes, to reflect the increasing globalization of cooking. The revision will also include an all-new chapter on Plated Desserts, including information on composing successful desserts and planning a restaurant dessert menu, as well as recipes for impressive multi-component plated desserts, and will cover topics of growing importance such as sous vide cooking, seasonality, and sustainability.#xA0;The new edition features a new user-friendly design and structure, guiding readers through the basic principles behind each technique at a glance, and then providing more in-depth information along with step-by-step photography.
