Designer Dish

East Asian cuisines become increasingly design-focused

Implications - While presentation has always been an important factor in various cuisines around the world, specialty dishes in East Asian countries are putting a heavier focus on design as a selling point. Combining art, design and culinary skills, these dishes serve to offer interactive or experience-based benefits to those choosing to consume them. The use of design as a selling point doesn't take away from the fundamental focus these cuisines have on flavor, but instead serves to incentivize consumers to choose these particular items over competitors without this additional branding.
