Cooking and creativity

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 4.15.09 PM

We love to explore how food brings us together and reinforces who we are.

If you think about it, cooking is what makes us human (we are the only species that cooks its food!).

And when human beings thrive: they create, they innovate. They use their senses to make art.

We found the article of Kim Severson in the New York Times on March 7, 2016 “Questlove’s Latest Quest: Bringing Chefs Together” very compelling.

Questlove’s passion for music and food shines through the creative pursuit. “There is no difference between the music you listen to and the food you eat,” Mr. Samuelsson said. “The emotions are the same. They are both a narrative.”

Are you inspired by food? Tell us how you think the joy of cooking brings up your creative side?
