Eating is a necessity, but cooking is an art. As a traditional artist and self-taught cook, I know how important killer presentation and plating skills are. In order to please your guests, your food doesn't just need to taste great, it has to be visually stimulating as well. Nobody understands this better than Eastwood City's finest chefs, as they whipped up and served a degustation dinner that blew me away.
