Why share recipes?
Let’s remember now that as primitive hunter developed, cooking became a social activity. As thousands of years progressed, every culture developed a unique food philosophy. The way we cook our food tells a lot about who we are and the elements of our environment and can engage all the senses.
The act of cooking itself is a spiritual pursuit. Cooking can be a journey towards the rediscovery of the self and creation of new perspectives. It can elevate the soul to great heights and arouse a heavenly bliss by pushing a person’s happy buttons. In certain cultures, cooking is perhaps the highest form of meditation, culminating in a spiritual ritual for nourishing the soul and balancing the cosmos forces of yin and yang.
