Creating artful dishes requires proper tools. You can use a CAMBRO dredge to dust garnishes, like powdered sugar, over a stencil to create a specific pattern on a dessert. For elaborate garnishing, Dexter’s Seven Piece Garnishing Tool Set creates attractive garnishes out of fruit, vegetables, and more to add texture to your plate. This set includes a vegetable peeler, single scoop Parisian cutter, butter curler, double scoop Parisian cutter, apple corer, lemon zester, and channel knife. Each tool features a stainless steel blade and a polypropylene handle making them easy to clean. Lastly, tools like these Stainless Steel Bar Tweezers by American Metalcraft can help you precisely place each garnish for the perfect look.
