Review by Debbie Mazo
Aptly named for the hosts' creative talents, Eat Your Art Out is a one of a kind original with a lot of eye appeal. Tastefully designed with graphic icons that access the site's contents, Eat Your Art Out features food and entertaining ideas, recipes anyone can cook, and informative gourmet articles on a wide range of topics.
To throw a party today, you need a lot more than just a good caterer. If you're planning on entertaining in the near future, check out the step-by-step guide to party preparations. Here, you'll find stylish pointers for the event, including invitations, flowers and decorations, and, most important, food. If you're going to be your own chef, one tip to remember is to choose one special dish that will be the focus of attention. To complement the centerpiece dish, use other selections based on their color, texture, shape, temperature, and taste.
The recipe palette at Eat Your Art Out has something for everyone. All recipes are homegrown and include a photo of the final masterpiece. Browse through the collection, and you'll find exotic selections like Chicken Sui Mai (minced chicken finely wrapped in wonton squares) and Grilled Red Snapper with Asparagus, Nuts and Caviar. For a dessert guaranteed to please, try the Pear Paradise —a tasty combination of unsweetened mango pulp, orange rind, fresh orange juice, and sherry poured on arranged pears.
There's plenty of good writing at Eat Your Art Out where you're bound to pick up a variety of tips and tricks. Also On the Menu features posted articles like how to make the transition from all meat to all vegetables when becoming a vegetarian. Tired of hearing only bad news about your favorite foods? Eat Your Art Out serves up the good word on popular selections like tea, corn, and ginger.
Every artist knows the importance of tools of the trade. To help you prepare dishes to perfection, check out the Oven Temperature Guide with both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures. Ever wonder about the difference between scalding and parboiling? Search for the answer in the Glossary of Culinary Ingredients full of definitions for common cooking terms. Packed with helpful techniques and creative inspiration, Eat Your Art Out is definitely a work of art.
