The next time you volunteer to take fruit to the pot luck, please do me a favor and take 5 minutes to plate the fruit with some deliberate care into a tiny work of art.
- Pick an unusual-shaped platter. I like this little oval server.
- PLACE the fruit onto the platter—do not DUMP it out.
- Place each strawberry, one at a time, green side up.
- Take a moment to appreciate your masterpiece before it is quickly consumed.
