I just came back from my holidays in Barcelona. On Wednesday we ate in a restaurant awarded with two Michelin stars. It was the most delicious food I have ever eaten! It was a 13 course menu and each menu represented a movie. The presentation of the food told a story, looked beautiful and was done in a very creative way. For this reason, I do not doubt that cooking on a high level is clearly some kind of visual art form because visual arts are not limited to painting in my opinion. In addition to this I would also consider cooking an art form, even if you let the whole presentation thing aside. If you think about it, paintings are pleasing to the sense of seeing and music is pleasing to the sense of hearing. Cooking with the goal to please your sense of tasting is therefore also an art form. What are your thoughts?
