As diners become more health conscious, learn the basics of nutrition and give them the food they want.
Plating and presentation refers to the arrangement of food on the plate dressed with a sauce or topped with garnishing. These simple touches make dishes visually more appealing for diners.
Different types of restaurants require assorted tableware for various types of plating. Some of the factors that affect the kind of plates and cutlery for a restaurant are:
Casual cafes can use the same plates for most dishes while a fine dining French restaurant requires specialised plates for different courses.
If different dishes require different plates, the restaurant will require more plates depending on the size of the menu.
Larger restaurants can seat more diners so this means more plates are also required.
