As you will see in the photos, you can use different props for the same food. In my examples, I have a mushroom risotto and I use lots of props to make many different photos. This is the best exercise you can do to start learning about styling and props. Play around with everything you have.
Leave the same settings and just change the background or the props. I had natural light coming from the right side and I had a wooden background. I took a lot of photos from different angles and with different props. Later on, you can analyze them and learn.
Keep taking photos!
