Its very helpful! Nathaniel gave me some basic rules about plating and showed me several methods frequently used by chefs. He is very good at demonstrating and answer all my questions clearly with patient. Cannot wait to try and practice!

Ariane had great energy and great information! Her plating techniques were insightful, but my favorite things were the tips regarding adding height to my plating and also changing different fruits and vegetable colors into something new and abstract.
We experienced technical difficulties on our end, and Ariane was very patient and gracious and extended our time at no charge. We look forward to exploring her website!
