Join Days for a special Color based dinner from NYC-based chef Diane Chang of Po Po's!
“Color”: eye-catching and pleasing colors reflect not only the natural color of the
ingredients (on top of good natural color and other elements such as good control of
heat), but also the blend of different ingredients. Good color presentation is another
marker of assessment. Beautiful color displays not only the natural beauty of the
ingredients but also of cooking techniques and skills. In addition, various ingredients have
harmonious color combinations. Color and smell are the indicators appealing to the
senses that basically decide the aesthetic value of a dish. The ideal is the natural color and
beauty of the ingredients.”
