There are many ways you can approach cooking and one of these is as poetry, which means giving importance to the way the food is put in the plate and composed, “for show”.
Once I was told “If you find the right balance between the colours, as you do when painting, your dish will be a work of art”.
Think about it. If you see a plate which looks nice, would you not be thinking “I can’t wait to taste it”!? I would.
This is because the way the food looks is the most important thing when you are deciding what you are going to eat and you are driven to think that if the cook paid attention to the detail, they have surely done a great job with the taste.
Look at your pots or pans and think of the colour that will look amazing in them to add the perfect ingredient.
Life is for cooking, and we love the way this dish (Pasta with red sauce, grated parmesan cheese and basil) looks.
Enjoy your cooking!
