Are chefs painters?

Is it possible to describe the food style/taste of a chef like a visual identity for a company? The food identity of the chef.

What kind of words would you use? Feelings? Taste words? Colors?
A chef needs to understand all the tastes and ingredients, so they can create awesome dishes.

Is it like art? Understanding color and understanding how to mix them to create WOW paintings? People come back for those same style paintings.

Chef’s understand taste, texture and methods… they can create a WOW dish. People come for those same style flavors: a bit similar to their old experience, but still mindblowing.

Cooking is like art I believe. You can be creative with tastes, colors and textures. Art stimulates the eye and creates feelings in the observer. Food stimulates the eye, tongue, nose and create feelings in the eater.

Also at a more fancy restaurant the chef will make art of your plate. So yes, chefs are painters.

That was my small food for thought of the week.

Coming soon

It has been a bit quiet in the foodvlog department, but there are plans to film at two restaurants. So you can expect two foodvlogs coming soon.

It’s also becoming hot… I am planning to share a refreshing cucumber salad with you guys. And mum is back in town, so a dumpling recipe (or video maybe?) is coming soon. Lots to look forward to 🙂

Have a sunny weekend!
