You try and you try, but your food never looks like all those professional shots you see all over Instagram. With our simple tips, you’ll be able to take your food presentation to the next level.

Not All Dishes Look Beautiful

There are some delicious foods that just never look like a gourmet meal. Lasagnas, plates full of beige foods (rice, potatoes, etc.), and soups can struggle to look fancy no matter how hard you try.

Play With Colors

It’s easy to create a beautiful arrangement when you have a plate full of colorful veggies, but what about some not-so-colorful dishes? You can add sauces and dressings in complementary colors to achieve an amazing effect.

White Plate

A patterned plate can look gorgeous by itself, but once the food enters the picture, it’s better to stick to a simple white plate — perhaps you can choose an unusual shape, such as a rectangle.
