About The Art of Plating

While plating can be an afterthought or a nice addition in many Instagram foodie images, @theartofplating focuses squarely on the visual and textural elements of a dish for both its Instagram account and popular web mag, The Art of Plating, edited by Maria Nguyen. Featuring the work of countless food photographers and renowned chefs, @theartofplating never gets stuck in one visual style, instead presenting many philosophies. Their YouTube channel goes behind the artists’ processes, with videos on mathematical precision and plate deconstruction. Featured in Vogue in October, @theartofplating has reached haute couture status, with 225k foodie followers.
