Real Balsamic Vinegar and many more tips!
Our suggestions are useful if you aren’t sure about the better way to serve your culinary creations. Let’s start!

Tip 1: Try not to cover the entire plate. When we prepare the dish, we usually tend to cover all the plate, without leaving any empty space. However, it would be better to dispose not too much food on the surface of the plate, leaving some empty space.

Tip 2: Do not place the food in the center of the plate, try to be creative and use perspectives.

Tip 3: Height. The plate must have 3 dimensions and the height is the dimension which is often missing. For instance, you could place the side dish not on the side of the main course but on top of it: everything will change!

Tip 4: Use toppings! For many first and second courses we recommend you the Original Balsamic Vinegar glaze, its characteristic sweet and sour flavor is able to enhance a great variety of dishes. Check the recipe of the real Balsamic Vinegar glaze on our blog!

Tip 5: Be creative! Let yourself be guided by inspiration! A good-looking dish is in part determined by the rules but also by the creativity of the chef!

These were L-O’s tips to plate up the perfect dish!

Then cook the capon in the previously prepared broth. Let it cook for an hour and a half, checking it from time to time. Examine the thighs that should come off without too much resistance. Furthermore, there should be no trace of red.
