I'm a photographer, and I've started digging in the food photography world, but I've basically been using what I have at hand when doing food styling, does anyone any basic kits for decorating or preparing dishes? Also, I've been looking everywhere for matte or rustic-looking plates for my photography, if anyone has suggestions I'd really appreciate them!

While this doesn't specifically address your question about a basic kit for decorating, one book that really is fantastic to check out from a culinary photography standpoint is Modernist Cuisine. They have a multi volume set, but they also have a Modernist Cuisine At Home hardcover book which is as gorgeous, just condensed. I offer this up just as some inspiration.

For rustic looking plates, check out the following.... Jered's Pottery - handmade stuff that's pretty cool. https://jeredspottery.myshopify.com/
Heath Ceramics - great colorations, some of which are more matte and/or organic.... http://www.heathceramics.com/cook-dine/plates

So I don't know if this is correct, but I remember it being on like a CSI: New York rerun once, perp was a food photographer who used their Carbon Monoxide (the lethal stuff people have detectors for, not CO2) aerosol can to poison a victim and kill them, they said they used the CO in food photography to cause meats to oversaturate and look better or something, look into it!
Edit: Found it! CSI: New York, Season 3, Episode 3, "Love Run Cold" Wiki link: http://csi.wikia.com/wiki/Love_Run_Cold (Looks like whomever wrote the synopsis was using CO2 and Carbon Monoxide interchangeably when they're completely different chemicals. Not certain what's correct.)

If you aren't looking for a whole set Goodwill would be a great place to grab some matte/rustic looking plates and bowls etc. On the cheap too.
