Easy, Inexpensive Centerpiece Idea

This Centerpiece Is Salt, Spice, and Everything Nice

I made it my mission to eat myself silly at Charlie Palmer's Pigs & Pinot, but also happened to find entertaining inspiration at the same time. At one table, chef Roland Passot offered egg-cellent boiled eggs with toast soldiers. Eggshells don't stand up easily on their own, but he served them in a large bowl filled with rock salt, star anise, and pink and white peppercorns. I loved the natural colors and unpretentious feel of the presentation — and the fact that this wouldn't be too difficult or expensive to re-create. What unique ways do you like to serve food for a crowd?

I think it looks pretty good and I'd eat it! I agree I don't like to waste food but you could use the spices afterwards, unless you're a germaphobe. I am not!I try to be very unique and theme my decorations, etc. to my dinners/parties. :)

When I first saw it I thought "Whoa. What a waste of ingredients". I also agree with skigurl. Doesn't look too appealing.When I serve food at parties I just put them in baskets with with cloth, or on ceramic platters made for me by friends and random glassware given to me by family. I have an eclectic array of serving platters that I enjoy using.

i'll be honest, this doesn't look very appealingit's a good IDEA, creative, but it doesn't look niceand it's also not really a centrepiece so much as an appetizer platter
