Spray for killing flying insects in my pantry and will it affect the food


well it depends of you food is open, canned, bagged in paper or plastic. For canned food, I would definitely wash the can before you serve it, so the spray won't mix in with the food. For the bagged stuff, I would say that food wrapped in plastic would be more save granted their isn't any he's in the bag. That bug spray is real oily and can penetrate a paper bag. And uncoverd is self explanatory.

What are some of the presentation and plating technique that can make Asian food more appealing and appetizing?


as a good Sheaf would say; be inventive as you know garnish is a good start and how you lay it out on the plate or platter can be artistic as well and then the sours is most important. the best advice I can give is if you love what you present then you should be happy.
