    Plating is the least important thing to me. Taste is what’s important. What good is plating if it tastes like sh*t?

    I know it’s been a good few years now.But when did everyone start mispronouncing the word ‘herbs’ and why ?
    Everyone sounds like a demented Cockney wnen they say ‘erbs.
    Please try to enlighten me.

  4. Amur Carp on July 20, 2023 at 3:58 pm

    Wait, paint isn’t edible?!?!

  5. Cold Blooded on July 20, 2023 at 3:59 pm

    You burned the scallops dude

  6. Romain Rochat on July 20, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    Very nice video, useful and inspiring. Many thanks.

  7. ExplorerAA on July 20, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    0:17 Ok, I get your point…. buy just sayin: I think that statistic might be off a bit. giggity!

  8. stringwhore on July 20, 2023 at 4:03 pm

    No it’s not

  9. lotiism on July 20, 2023 at 4:03 pm

    Why not wearing gloves? Your hand will sweat during food preparation 😅

  10. Nobody on July 20, 2023 at 4:04 pm

    As a person who eats out a lots of different restaurants…. I’d be pissed if any of those dished were dropped on my table… yea they look good, but there’s basically ZERO food on those plates.. maybe he did that just to keep cost down while demonstrating.. idk

  11. Christabella Garcia on July 20, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    Thank you ❤

  12. Takami Matsubara on July 20, 2023 at 4:08 pm

    Also think of Negative and Positive Space.

  13. Mychajlowskij Music on July 20, 2023 at 4:09 pm

    Cool, I could have watched this instead of paying for school

  14. Minnie11chula on July 20, 2023 at 4:10 pm

    Tip #2 make sure the plate is clean 😅

  15. Arjun Mehta on July 20, 2023 at 4:10 pm

    Great video! Would love to see a follow up video which focuses on what types of dishes/plates to serve food on for aesthetic appeal!

  16. Jon Binley on July 20, 2023 at 4:13 pm

    You Chicago guys have some cool way you say shit. Brian hagerstrom does the same shit. Peps instead of pepperoni, mozz for mozzarella. I grew up in Boston and we just swear a lot🤣

  17. Craig Britz on July 20, 2023 at 4:14 pm

    The first scallop dish looks nice and might make a good starter. The 2nd. dish however, the scallops should be browned, not black on top, they look burnt, the dominant colour is green with no other colours, apart from the black scallops and the plate looks too empty. The 3rd. dish, the brown sauce looks too watery, maybe you should use a thicker demi glace and whats this obsession with green, with some pea green sauce splashed all over the plate. Plating like pro is definitely a bold statement to make.

  18. bick on July 20, 2023 at 4:15 pm

    Thank you Jason!

  19. Geoff Saunderson on July 20, 2023 at 4:17 pm

    Keeping on temp, when your doing say 5 covers for a dinner party, any tips anyone?

  20. Jarrard Scott on July 20, 2023 at 4:18 pm

    ohhhh, odd numbers are good at capturing GAZE. yeah I had that wrong lol

  21. AngryMurloc on July 20, 2023 at 4:19 pm

    Yeah odd numbers do catch gays. I love 3 in particular

  22. Matthew Dessormeau on July 20, 2023 at 4:21 pm

    Some people in my state got involved in something called Home base , some secret mission thing like 5 years ago or so hahahaha .. no joking though .. But definitely will recommenced some of these ideas once it resumes back to normal certain people didn’t have electric /heat through the entire winter guess it was part of some mission someone was setting up with a few.. lol But will share your recipe ideas ..

  23. Journals of a Happy Woman on July 20, 2023 at 4:26 pm

    I don’t like my food lying asymmetrically at one side of the plate.. a little away from the center is nice, but not at one corner of the plate literally unless there is a plan to use the centre space for mixing with something else

  24. Karl Gilbert on July 20, 2023 at 4:30 pm

    Our mandolin at work came with a little attachment to keep your hands out of the way. Yeah you lose the butt of whatever you’re using but you won’t lose the heel of your palm.

  25. Georgie M on July 20, 2023 at 4:30 pm

    No offense.. this plating is horrible. Nothing looked fancy and the scallops were burnt

  26. Paired Pints on July 20, 2023 at 4:31 pm

    I often revisit this video because it perfectly gives everyone an approachable way to improve plating. I can pair flavors till the cow comes home but few will be interested if my dishes look like poop. Thanks again

  27. Rogier van der Heide on July 20, 2023 at 4:32 pm

    Those scallops are burned! Such precious food, spoiled. Way too many on the plate also, how can you even finish that dish.

  28. Omnivorous Adam on July 20, 2023 at 4:35 pm

    SHOW ME A PIC OF YOUR FOOD! If you enjoyed the vid and have since used any of the tips to plate something pretty, post a picture of it over in the O.A. Discord server! See you over there – https://discord.gg/aFQ4h4BXg4

  29. Mike Miloserdoff on July 20, 2023 at 4:35 pm

    Thanks for sharing. Very useful. Plating is subjective not objective, like art. Go with the leads’ orders for political correctness. 😊

  30. Iain Josper on July 20, 2023 at 4:36 pm

    Even numbers when plating makes your brain subconsciously look for symmetry. So if symmetry isn’t achieved, the plating looks off.

  31. Karen Perez on July 20, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    Thanks for all the tips, but why is the sticker still on the stock pot?

  32. Jonsson on July 20, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    That first white plate was probably the ugliest and most worn out plate I’ve seen in a professional kitchen. 😉

  33. Kaylee.family on July 20, 2023 at 4:37 pm

    What about the other percentage….

  34. TasFood on July 20, 2023 at 4:38 pm

    Best recipe🎉🎉🎉🎉

  35. Saurabh Dharmadhikari on July 20, 2023 at 4:40 pm

    Bro your eyes are beautiful. Did some green peas puree drop in there. 👀

  36. Gallus Anonymus on July 20, 2023 at 4:41 pm

    You want to teach me how to serve a dish and you use a cooking pot with a sticker from the store, it’s a drama!

  37. LuzuVlogs Gamer on July 20, 2023 at 4:42 pm

    If Ramsay saw you cleaning that Dish with the Alcohol man you are out..

  38. Danica Gallos on July 20, 2023 at 4:44 pm

    Are those burnt scallops?

  39. E SHACKLETON on July 20, 2023 at 4:44 pm

    The burnt scallops should be binned.

  40. Andrew G on July 20, 2023 at 4:44 pm

    Tip number 1.. Put on some fkn gloves.. Runs greens & flowers through salad spinner but then puts greens and flowers on his hand before plating.. THE OILS IN YOR HANDS WILL MAKE DELICATE HERBS & FLOWERS WILT BEFORE THEY HIT THE TABLE !

    MORONS 🤣👎

  41. Alexander Windh on July 20, 2023 at 4:45 pm

    It’s pretty obvious when you know about it… Funny how the brain works. Thanks for many good tips. 😊

  42. lovehope3753 on July 20, 2023 at 4:47 pm

    Profanity is not useful. Do better.

  43. Jason Gallegos on July 20, 2023 at 4:48 pm

    Why are you advertising expired food?

  44. HomeBologn on July 20, 2023 at 4:48 pm

    Auto-Gen captions literally said that odd numbers were more effective at capturing Gays.

  45. Soham Darekar on July 20, 2023 at 4:49 pm

    7:42 Why do you leave so much space on the plate and why is it only on one side is it like a plating tip that you forgot to tell😅😅

  46. Midnight Soldier 78 on July 20, 2023 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you Brother for the Tips And expertise of your Talent

  47. Mayo 501 on July 20, 2023 at 4:52 pm

    Shit plating and sauce looks like piss. Try again

  48. Juan pablo Almeida on July 20, 2023 at 4:54 pm

    You got it wrong bro, i like ass, and the booty, and most guys do 😂

  49. Enenkel Cornelia on July 20, 2023 at 4:54 pm

    Thank you 🙏🏻
