My goal is to present to you a gallery of fine art in raw and vegan cuisine. I am integrating innovative pairings of flavors with elements of design; creating beauty in food presentation. Both elegant and exquisite, these creations come together to form lasting impressions.
Beautiful foods appeal to all of our senses, bringing back memories full of pleasant experiences. They remind us of beautiful sunsets on the beach, the favorite seasons of the year, places we've travelled to, special occasions with family that we've enjoyed, etc... Hopefully, my foods will move all of you forward in making new memorable experiences in your lives.
Different perspectives on food preparation come from all over the world. I want to include these as I share my version of various recipes from other lands. Culture and foods go hand in hand. It is a fascinating topic to delve into. Why foods are combined together, why they are seasoned the way that they are, where they are from; are all things that I want to place in your imaginations to help you create on your own.
This journey is both exciting and fun, full of new twists and turns. New ideas present themselves every day. Exploring and developing foods is never dull because one never knows what a pairing will taste like until it is in one's mouth. The fun lies in being able to change a bad idea into a good one as the recipe is being developed. An ability to think quickly and add a pinch of this or that is how we develop taste. I will share with you how I devise several workable options as I move on through a recipe. Modifying it to our advantage includes seasoning to taste, using needed substitutions, and what to use to remedy mistakes in culinary art and design.
Video presentations on my food carving technique will show you how to present lovely center pieces for your table as well as ornamentation for each individual dish. Everyone admires and enjoys a unique design at the dining table.
So let's embark on our cultural, artsy, culinary journey now. I'm excited to have your company. Please enjoy with me!
