Chefs will always tell you, “Presentation is everything.” Well I’ve noticed that in a few types of international cuisine, it really is!
In Argentina the popular snack food empanadas are shaped based on their fillings. A traditional meat, or “carne”, empanada will look like a half circle with a frilly edge, but a cheese and onion one might look more like a full circle or a pot pie. Study up so you’ll be able to choose your flavors like a pro!
In Tibet and Nepal, they have “MoMo’s”, a type of dumpling. These too are often shaped based on their filling (though it doesn’t seem to be very consistent). A vegetable MoMo will look like a little purse or pouch, where as a meat one will resemble a crescent.
Just some interesting Food for Thought!
