Food As Art

Matcha tea or green watercolors? Food as art! Food is “Joie” to me. According to historians, the word “ART is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination… producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”

As you can see, “ART” is defined by its genesis in the human mind. As a creative, I hope to show you creativity through food? Food is just one of my many loves. I express love through food, travel, fashion, and living a healthy lifestyle. I also show love by edifying other people.

I love all kinds of food. I love good country foods like turnip greens, butter beans, okra, sweet potatoes, trout, and cornbread. These are the foods I grew up eating—food that feeds the soul. But I also love Italian pasta, Phos, and Sushi. My culinary studies and travels around the world have introduced me to a wide variety of experiences.

Food is meant to be enjoyed. If we learn how to eat with moderation, not a restriction, then rekindle that part of ourselves that eats with heart. For many, its called “Soul” or “Soul Food.” Whatever word we use, food as “Art” is essential to Joie!
