Home Cuisines: Fine Dining


Inspired by: Chef’s Table Season 1 Episode 2

The art of fine dining and creating the cuisines that you long to taste is in the crops and groceries you purchase. It is important that you make your home the restaurant. Even with a busy lifestyle, you can make specialty dishes that serve you well.

The art is in managing your time. Perhaps, meal prepping can be an option. It's the one day a week that you purre and make your specialty lemon sauce. It is up to you how you manage your time. What works for six months may not work for the rest of the year. Your life is ever changing. So should how you manage your time and space in your home.  

Enlist other members of your family to accommodate to the needs of the home. This will allow you the opportunity to focus your love and attention on your chef table. Push through and make your home and cooking great! Invest energy in the foods you place in your body. 

You can be a vegan and eat from a vegan restaurant. But the majority of the vegan restaurants aren't organic. This is a problem. Most restaurants, if not all, are not concerned with ethical standards. Are you concerned with where they get their meat? Where are they getting their wheat? Their dishes are not organic and are harmful to your body. So eat at those places sparingly if you're going to eat there at all. 

You are what you eat and you are what they eat too.

The best taste and extending your life expectancy:

  • You can't taste good food unless it comes from whole sources.
  • "The more life there is in the soil, the more potential you have for the creation of flavor (Chef's Table, S1E2)."
  • "Organic farmers have to return the fertility back to the soil (Chef's Table, S1E2)."
  • Ethical and sustainable food are safe and offered with care.
  • Organic choices (only, if possible).
  • Organic seeds, vegetables, fruits, etc.
  • Look for a new angle. Always be open to learning and purchasing high-quality foods and goods.
  • Be about change.
  • Put positive energy in your food, place your personal problems to the side. Give your food love as you cook.
  • Find out where your meat comes from. What farms are you purchasing from? 
  • Non-GMO/no antibiotics/gluten free. Minimize the gluten as much as possible. 
  • Use organic herbs and grains.
  • Organic coffee and chocolate and butter will serve you well.
  • Grains are better than whole wheat.
  • When cooking veggies, make sure they stay vibrant in color or you'll be cooking the nutrients right out of them. 
  • Ask farms about the soil. Purchase from organic farms. 
  • Look up "the dirty dozen." These are an 'organic must!'
