As art touches our senses in a way or another, this particular art is proven to be the most sensual of all as it invade not one but four senses at a time. Admiring an original VAN GOGH, is no doubt an exceptional joy, but touching it will only bring you trouble. You can't reach the beauty of a photograph by tasting it or that of a symphony by smelling. Good food is created to implicate a journey of senses. Seen, smelled, touched and tasted food is meant to be appreciated on different levels.

Quote | Moto As a culinary artist, I've witnessed chefs, masters of the art of food, producing dishes to comfort, energize and inspire people or even awake nostalgia sometimes, reminding them of dear old Mom. A talented chef can nourish the body and please the palate, leaving the guest satisfied yet eager for more. Of course, it is not a simple feat. Specialized training dedications, along with talent are the key ingredients of the success recipe. As much as visual artists need a good perception for color and composition, chefs need well developed senses of taste and smell. Great chefs recognize subtle nuances in flavors. This ability allows them to explore bold new flavors combinations and create successful mixtures. Truly successful chefs have put their own stamps on traditional dishes and created new combinations. Excellence though demands creativity and flair for experimentation which are the essential traits of top chefs.
