How do you present food? Take the test and discover your personality

How do you present food? Take the test and discover your personality

Food presentation is no longer an exclusive domain of caterings, hotels, chefs and food bloggers. Plating is not just a synonym of “getting served” or “putting food in a plate” but it has gained a broader meaning.

Starting from this definition, and with the precious support of...

Both fashion and design have always been about finding the right combination of materials, forms, craftsmanship and functionality. But today, as never before, these two disciplines have become inextricably intertwined. The word “designer”, for example, usually referred to a person who creates interiors and objects, is now used instead of “stylist”: fashion designers create exclusive custom-fitted clothing, made from high-quality materials and traditional techniques.
