Food Presentation: "A Bicycle" Garnish
Materials used in this food garnishing project: one portion of cooked wheat, 2 slices of bologna, 2 pieces of green onion, 1 slice of boiled carrot, 2 black pitted olives, 1 slice of cucumber, ketchup.
Step 1. Take a plate and one portion of boiled wheat. Spread the wheat evenly over the plate.
Step 2. Using a round cutter, cut two big circles out of bologna. They will be used for "wheels."
Step 3. Put the "wheels" on the wheat as shown in the picture.
Step 4. Using a decorating tip and bag filled with ketchup, draw "bike’s spokes" on pieces of bologna.
Step 5. Draw "bike’s tires" the same way.
Step 6. Using pieces of green onion, make the "bike’s frame."
Step 7. Cut a circle of boiled carrot into half. One half can be used for "the seat of the bicycle."
Step 8. Take two pitted black olives and insert a piece of green onion into holes of the olives. This will be used for "the bike’s handlebar."
Step 9. Use a circle of cucumber for a "bicycle’s chain ring."
