Eat With Your Eyes and Savor Every Second
Cooking and art go hand in hand. We all have that one meal that gives us great joy, something that inspires us and makes us excited to eat it. Making it look gorgeous just makes sense. Of course, there’s a lot more to this than many may think, and knowing more about art as a whole can, in turn, help us make more delicious and vibrant dishes.
Understanding Food At Home
Freedom Is Key
We should be free to explore food in all the forms it takes, without guilt or sadness
Quotes That Capture The Joy of Food
“Prepared and fast foods have given us the time and freedom to see cooking as an art form – a form of creative expression.”
Jeff Smith, ‘The Frugal Gourmet Keeps the Feast’
Blending Together Two Passions
By blending art and food together, we can enrich ourselves. Leaning into one or the other is a great thing to allow ourselves to grow and improve, to share wonderful experiences with those we love and care so deeply for.
“Cooking is an art and patience a virtue… Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing – love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist – not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love.”
Keith Floyd, ‘A Feast of Floyd’
