Food is a form of art. Given the opportunity, chefs create visually enticing food which pushes conventional taste boundaries. Foams and reductions accent the presentation, while textures, temperature, and taste are toyed with to disregard what the mind has been programmed to believe. In short, beyond basic sustenance and simple indulgence, food is an escape and an invitation to regress back to the days where creativity was more pertinent. They say that life is about enjoying the journey, so let this be the invitation for you to take your palette and imagination out for a ride.
