The opening picture and the topic of this post would have given you enough hint about what is to follow. So let's not pretend to guess...We are talking about food.

Food on a design blog? Can be a bit mind boggling!



Could you, even in your wildest imagination, think of design and food in the same breath? After all food is for survival – a basic necessity of life while design is more like a luxury...

You could talk about creativity in the way ingredients were used to create a dish - the lady creating a finger licking dish in a jiffy, but design and food still seem poles apart.

Design is as big a necessity as food
(though this aspect often goes unacknowledged and that is a topic for another day)

One look at the master chef series or at food served in gourmet restaurants will make you realize that when the talk is about food, its not just the taste buds but also the visual appeal that is involved. Who would let go of an opportunity to dig into a beautifully plated dish?

Chefs all over the world focus a lot on details and plating of food - neither escapes them nor does it escape the eyes of a connoisseur.
