Think Like a Food Stylist
A deep bowl with high sides may be perfect for serving soup, but if you've got solid food in there, all the heavier goodies, such as nuts or dried fruits, will fall to the bottom. Forte, whose blog Sprouted Kitchen
is packed with gorgeous images of meals in bowls, from tofu lemongrass
to black bean and poached egg
, suggests using low, shallow bowls that are almost like plates with lipped edges. Something the size of a dinner plate is ideal, and remember that you're better off with too much room rather than not enough, because a packed bowl will overflow, and it'll be hard to get at all the ingredients in one bite.
