Contemporary cuisine is not just eaten; it is also looked at and thought about. Very much so. Just like painting and photography, modern gastronomy has become yet another language one can use to create an emotional effect on the recipient. A person’s palate has to be trained, just like one’s sense of hearing, and culinary creators live alongside their demanding interpreters, transforming raw materials and the collective imagination, turning cookery into art.

Eating is an intimate act of love. When someone comes through your front door, sits at your table and you cook for them, you are inviting them to see, smell and feel what you do. One thing that all cultures around the world have in common is that meals are, above all, a celebration, a social act of the highest order and a hymn to existence. Perhaps that is because few loves are as sincere as love for food.
