ARTICOLI

“Anyone who has ever prepared a meal for a loved one, whether family or friends may have experienced a pleasurable feeling when gathering in a big meal.
When the colors and flavors mingle with the cook´s certainty that the food will be exquisite, something happens through the cook, through the food, through the meditation path and it comes back later.
I guess you could call it love. People have enjoyed the food before eating. This is perceived by the chef and grows a sense of well-being.”
D. Scott y T. Pappas, Three Bowls Cookbook
