This was too good not to pass along. Steve Plotnicki, of Opinionated About Dining, does more fine dining than just about anyone I know, and he's recently put up a photographic tour through what he considers to be the finest dishes being served on the planet today. And boy are they amazing.
These photos of appetizers, entrees, and desserts from Europe's finest restaurants are a great overview of what some of the most creative chefs in the world are doing both in terms of ingredients and presentation.
NOTE: there's something screwy about the slideshows where they don't actually show you all the photos, so I recommend clicking on each photo individually.
