Texture is an important aspect when it comes to food. There are different sorts of textures and being able to know which texture can be paired with which is a skill I hope to accomplish. In the photo that I have chosen there is quite a balance of texture within the products. The scallops in the picture are seared to perfection to obtain the golden tops on each side of the scallop. You can see the flakes of black pepper still embedded on the sides of the scallop. The scallop is placed on top of a piece of meat that I interpreted to be the salty, tougher product of the dish to balance off the chewiness of the scallop. The colors of the dish come together to incorporate the freshness of the scallop and the herbs placed on the plate for garnish purposes or even a different taste factor. Although the portions are quite small the flavor components speaks volume.
