Why Food Matters

One of the defining characteristics of a civilization is the art it creates. Art generally appeals to one out of three of the 5 senses (sight, sound or touch). Food is the only time when all of the five senses are used simultaneously. We see the food's colors matched with the aroma hanging between the heat and our nostrils. We hear the crackle, crunch, or squish as we bite down and feel the texture of the spoon, fork or handful when we chew. Then we taste. We assault our senses with salty, sweet, dry, moist, earthy or spicy and we enjoy. Great food is meant to be savored, to linger on the tongue and even longer on the memory.

Over the course of this blog's life there will be many topics discussed all relating to food in some way. From finding the best pizza, inside stories of the restuarant industry, food in film, failed home experiments with food etc.
