Heh... I do ok. I think it sounds that way because I tend to intellectualize the process the way I do most things. The whys and hows of what I put together are just as important to me as the end result.

I think that food can be a mirror, but it doesn't necessarily say all that much. For some, it may just be an indication that food is simply fuel. On the other side of the spectrum, food is a way of life. Like most things, its importance is dictated by what it means to us.

I think for me, the relationship I have to food is important on a number of levels. At the heart of things, I am a sensualist, and I find that food can be sublime. Add to that the strange lessons in deprivation I learned from my crazy aunt (mother to my Ken doll cousin) and the lean years after my parents divorce. Mix thoroughly and then add inadvertent training as a pseudo-sous chef at a country club when one of the staff walked off the job. Once you're done with all of that, you have some idea of where I stand in the spectrum.

Or perhaps that was more confusing. ::shrug:: Don't know. There'll probably be more on this later.
