        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.
