I've talked about the sounds your kitchen makes when you're cooking and on the FB page I talked about taste vs. flavor. Today I'm going to bring it home.
How many times has you partner said " what sounds good for dinner?" or maybe you've asked yourself the same question. In my house the typical response is "I don't know." Why is that? Because food doesn't make a sound. When our brain interprets the word sound, that's what we think of.
What if we said, what smells good or what looks good for dinner? Would our brain readjust its answer? Not a clue but, that's what I want to talk about today, the color of food.
I noticed that the colors I chose for the website are very similar to the colors I have in my home, rich greens, golds, reds, and browns with accents of light brown and black (earth tones). I tend to cook the same way. I always have the following in my fridge:
Celery, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes, red, green, yellow bell pepper, green and red chili peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and assorted greens. Can you see a pattern here? I cook to the colors I like.
I also cook to smells I like. If my brain wants something mild, that's what I cook. If I feel a lot of energy, I tend to cook spicy.
So the next time you think about what sounds good for dinner, think about what will smell good and taste good for dinner.
I invite you to tell our community what smells and colors you enjoy and how you plan you meals around those senses rather than, what sounds good!
Until next time,
