Food can be art and has been through the ages.
Eh re all this stuff. Cook your selves silly.
I see I was Ms. Snot. I'm sure I was reacting to a bunch of past seen photos of chinese food-art. But I looked again and laughed about the cauliflower sheep..
I'm also often reactionary, semi-reactionary, about high end gourmet plate presentation, which is also an art. Sort of like "give me my meat and potatoes already", as they generally look good together. And yet.. I sometimes like all that food play.
Relating it to another curmudgeonly take of mine, on some "art in the landscape". I often, though not always, prefer the landscape without the added art.
