Here it is. If we did not taste with our eyes, why is so much money spent on packaging and decorating food products. I mean I'm not even talking restaurants or the fast food billboards, just a can of soup or a bread bag. I guess while I am on the subject it does translate into the worlds of dining from fast to fine. Thus my own thoughts on why simple plates with polish allow food to shine. We taste first with our eyes, then our nose and finally our tastebuds.
Plates, bowls and packaging all say something. Think about this, a can of soup will not sell if it is all white with words, people want to see what is inside. Similarly, plates that are beautiful may not show beautiful food for diners are to busy looking at the frame not the picture. Surround a Picasso in a neon frame and tell me what you see.
