Everyone knows that half the battle when it comes to haute cuisine is getting your plate to look just so. That’s why all those fancy chefs out there spend so much time on plating: because you eat with your eyes long before the food even touches your lips.
But when it comes to pasta, especially spaghetti, even the best home chefs have a hard time making it look like anything other than tomato-y brains on a plate. (Hey, we can’t help it if that’s what spaghetti actually looks like.)
That’s why our minds have been blown by this simple trick. All you need in order to plate the perfect portion-controlled plate of pasta is a little old meat fork. Yup, you read that right. You know the utensil that’s usually stored in a junk drawer gathering dust until the holidays, when it’s time to carve the turkey? Turns out that it’s the perfect spaghetti server.
