5 Ways to make your dinner look fancy

5 Ways to make your dinner look fancy

27 May 2022 - Uqonic Chefs

Making your food look fancy isn't hard at all, and if you want to learn how do keep reading. If you're craving the ultimate convenience, skip right to the last tip and order a Uqonic Chefs dinner box from the world's best chefs.

If you are interested in tips to plate like a MICHELIN Star Chef, we recommend you to read our blog on this topic. In addition, our tips for fine dining at home might appeal to you as well.

Here are 5 ways to make your dinner look fancy:

  • When you start thinking about the best dishes to serve to your guests, choose the ones that taste and look great. Don't want to skip the dull-looking brownish stew you can't take your mind off because it tastes so good? Don't worry. Contrasts work beautifully (think of a bright coloured herb on top) or colourful plate.
  • Work your way to the top. Plate your dish in layers, making each layer a bit smaller than the previous. End with green leaves, edible flowers, pomegranate, fish eggs, or anything else that complements your dish from a visual and taste perspective.
  • Make sure your home is cosy and that your table styling is on point, with some nice background music. You could even let the cuisine you serve reflect in your music of choice.
  • Celebrate the moment and open a bottle of champagne. It gives you and your guest that instant ‘fancy dinner feeling’ and is a wonderful welcome drink to start your evening.
  • Keep your portions modest. Don't get us wrong; you don't want to send your guests home hungry. But you also don't want to stuff them. The feeling of longing for more is better than feeling sick from overeating. Smaller portions also look elegant and are the way to go if you are serving multiple dishes.
  • Do you want all the above but do the bare minimum? Visit our platform and select a multiple course dinner box from your favourite star chef.
