Do sides help elevate your meal?

Absolutely! Whether you’re creating a buffet table or trying to impress your fiends with extras at a dinner party, by choosing the right side dishes that compliment your main course.

By carefully choosing flavours which elevate or pair well with the seasonings on your plate, you are guaranteed to create a food experience as opposed to just a typical dinner. This brings sophistication to your meals, proving you know more that just cooking.  

What’s the difference between a main dish and a side dish?

To simply put it, a main dish is larger, it’s typically the primary aspect of the dinner that the other components are built around.

A side dish is served as a smaller portion and is made from food that best compliments the main. For example, a side salad.
