Cuisine is culture. Eating is not.

The halftone Dot representing complexity and diversity.

"Symbols are the instrument which convert raw intelligence into culture. Without them 'man's life would be one of immediate appetites, immediate sensations, limited to a past shorter than his own lifetime, at the mercy of a future he could never anticipate, never prepare for. In such a world, out of hearing would be out of reach and out of sight would be out of mind."

- Lewis Mumford
