Pinch Food Design is a boutique catering team led by chef Bob Spiegel and designer TJ Girard. These NYC culinary veterans aim to “impress, entertain and inspire with food as delicious as it is daring, and design as inviting as it is innovative.” They specialize in creating surprising and exciting cuisine with imaginative presentation for clients at dinner parties.

Their new idea, Pinch Plated, offers “inter(active)courses” for diners that encourage them to play with their food. Gotham Magazine reports that these entertaining three-course meals invite guests to get involved with different elements of the dishes. They list some of the options on offer:

Tuna sushi and beets with “trim your own” micro salad is served in a peel-back sardine tin with embroidery scissors on the side. Meanwhile, a stacked dish of acorn squash risotto and boneless lamb chop with mint gelée and stewed kale is nestled beneath an “acorn cloche.” And hunks of beef filet are plated onto a piping hot rock alongside bamboo tongs, sauce Béarnaise, Brussels sprouts and truffled potatoes.
