      Food presents a problem for most of the world.
      It is a concern that has led to bursts of cultural
      creativity, and to conflict as people try to solve
      the problem of food, ie is there enough of it
      and will it be sufficient in quality to nourish.
      We find ourselves in a country of abundance where
      people have become distanced from the struggle for
      the production of food.  But aside from being a problem
      to be solved with hard work and creativity, food
      can be elevated to a place beyond struggle. That is
      where the art comes in, Food is an art medium that
      stimulates all five senses simultaneously. Food can
      inspire, and when done right and at the right time
      it even transcends the five senses and stimulates a
      sixth, it can end conflict, forge new bonds  bring
      a sense of security and well being.  Food in it's
      expression of art can be a representation of love.
      It can invoke any number of feelings and can be
      shared with others, it can induce the memory of
      past emotions, a good cook can play the emotions
      like a conductor with a band, you can be exited
      then relaxed each course offering a new experience
      until you are left completely sated not just
      physically, but emotionally as well.
