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.Â 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.
