The Art of Plating with Maria Nguyen

The Art of Plating with Maria Nguyen

The Art of Plating 

This summer, I interned at a small, online magazine company called Entity. On some occasions, they have a guest/mentor come in and educate the women on the guests' specialties. Today, Maria Nguyen, the founder of the art of plating, came in to show the girls how to plate food dishes. 

As I was photographing the event, I felt like I was watching Netflix's original show "Chef's Table." The delicacy that goes into plating the food on to the dishes is an art. It was like I was watching a painting in process. Then when I tasted the food afterwards, the unity of the ingredients was superb. I couldn't stop thinking about how good the foods in "Chef's Table" must taste. 

As a big foodie, this experience was intriguing and fun to photograph.  And I got to try the food! I was a happy camper after that.
