The graze phase is here to stay. And we’ve partnered with celebrity chef Sara Oteri to show you that you don’t need extravagant vases or plinths to create a beautiful grazing table – you just need the basics. Here are Sara’s tips for a show-stopping spread.
“I love grazing! It’s my go-to when friends come over because it’s communal and each person can choose what they like. And with a little finesse and Tetris-style configuring, it’s easy to turn your collection of White Basics into a striking centrepiece on the table.”
- A setting with no tall standing centrepieces allows guests to see eye-to-eye and pass plates easily.
- Two similar plates at each end of your arrangement creates balance and form.
- This style of dining really lends itself to deli foods like marinated olives, dips and cheeses. There’s little to no preparation involved – all that’s required is plating and arranging. Whether it’s Spanish, Korean, Greek or Turkish, this style works for so many cuisines.
