6 ways food and art are interlinked
ART OF PLATING
An attractive plate makes for a tastier dinner. And we have Catherine de Medici to thank for introducing thoughtful presentations way back in the 1500s when she married Henry II of France. She is said to have taught the French how to eat with a fork!
ART OF COOKING
It goes without saying that cooking is an art, and chefs make for great craftsmen. All artists are visionaries, and it takes great skill to curate, from scratch, flavours that explode in your mouth with every bite.
ART OF INGREDIENTS
Cooking is all about getting ingredients together in a harmonious unison. The right ingredient will complete your story; one misplaced ingredient will bring your dish crumpling to the ground. Did you know?
In a display of most dishes at the Administration Committee of Baibuting Community in Wuhan City, China (a world record), out of a total of 8,727 dishes, 581 dishes were disqualified due to repeated occurrence of the same main ingredient.
ART OF EATING
There’s more to eating than just table etiquettes. Eating is an art of sorts, and one man’s quirky eating habit is another man’s table etiquette.
Don’t believe us? Did you know, that in Thailand, eating with the fork in your mouth is considered to be bad manners, while in Japan, slurping your noodles means you’re complimenting the chef.
ART OF AMBIENCE
The ambience goes a long way in completing the entire experience of enjoying a meal. Setting the right mood depends on the ambience, and it can even go a long way in customer retention!
