Description: In the days of Old World dining elegance there was a room to the side of the main kitchen known as the place of the Garde Manger. This room was the domain of a chef skilled in the art of food decoration. His job was to prepare the food following the old adage "what is tempting to the eye is tempting to the appetite." From the ingenuity of his brain and the magic of his hands came creations that would have tempted the most jaded appetites.
This art today has evolved to a few simple tools used by most professional chefs. Chef Crowley -- a master in "The Fine Art of Garnishing" guides you in their use. In this book he is almost "looking over your shoulder" every step of the way. Simplified so anyone can do it. This book contains over 200 illustrations and 14 color photographs. It is an outstanding work in this field.
