The Center of the Plate
A Template for Cooking Creativity.
Never run out of menu ideas with this culinary tool.
It is the first of it's kind to have recipe and menu genesis.

Recipe development has become a science over the last couple of decades. When developing new recipe ideas, it is important to focus on the center of the plate item, or the star of the show (the item you are going to build your dish around). Once this Center of the Plate item is established, a person can then decide how to season, manipulate, cut and cook the item with the addition of other foods that go well together on the plate. A menu entree is born.

The cooking and flavoring of our foods can be a mysterious and unpredictable process. With the use of this app you will begin to have a better understanding of the creation of new and interesting dishes as well as inspiring yourself to come up with dishes you never thought you could imagine. This app is designed to provide numerous ideas and is a supplement to The Center of the Plate book. Touch and choose your way to the next great culinary dish. Share your latest entree on Twitter or Facebook. Email and/or print your latest menu.

Good luck, and “BON APPETIT!”
