We Want Plates

We Want Plates
$ 12.95| £ 8.99 (* recommended retail price)

This hilarious book serves up a cornucopia of absurd, unexpected, and downright stomachchurning ways restaurants are ditching the ordinary plate in favor of something more memorable.

Fed up with being served food on planks of wood and pieces of slate, or drinks in jars? How about beef Wellington on barbed wire, a cooked breakfast on a shovel or sausages in a dog bowl? In recent years, the culinary world has been gripped by an epidemic of restaurants and chefs “getting creative” with food presentation—and Ross McGinnes has had enough. In 2015 he founded the Twitter account @WeWantPlates to push back against this trend and document serving travesties, building up more than 130,000 followers and receiving thousands of submissions.

Organized by course—from starters to desserts—this wickedly funny book showcases the very “worst of” submissions as well as new material not previously published online. We Want Plates makes the perfect gift for anyone who likes their food served in the good old-fashioned way—on a plate.
