FOR HER THIRD DISH Cabo crafted a salmon entrée based on a woodblock print on paper titled “Wilderness III” by local artist and University of North Carolina Wilmington instructor Ann Conner. In order to capture the essence of the print, Cabo decided to approach her dish through simplistic means. Instead of using various different cutting and styling methods like she had previously used, she decided to rely on the natural beauty of the Norwegian salmon belly. “I had so many ideas of how to make this dish more complex, but it had beauty in its simplicity — so I didn’t want to alter it,” Cabo explains. In looking at the hard white lines that are created from the solid white plate, it is easy to see how Cabo envisioned the salmon, once swimming freely, being represented in the same fashion on the plate. “I think I was drawn to the fact that it looked like it was naturally occurring,” Cabo explains. “It is important to understand what translates well into differ-ent forms of art. This also goes for food when you think about the plating as an artistic expression.” 38 WBM december 2015
