Everyone loves to eat, right? I mean we eat when we’re happy, sad, depressed, excited, drunk, and for no reason at all. But how often does a meal tend to give you an emotion? Have you ever had a meal that moves you to tears because of its taste and connection to your past? I haven’t…not yet at least.
I came across this video on Nowness and immediately became connected to chef Massimo Bottura as he talks about his emotional connection to food.
“52-year-old Bottura has propelled to three-Michelin-stars and a number three ranking in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Inspired by everything from the origins of camouflage to the music of Thelonious Monk, Bottura’s super-high-concept tasting menus are an experience as much for the mind as the taste buds. It’s pretty much art you can eat.”
