The act of cooking happens every day in every corner the world. It is an act connected to the Earth and to human activity. For some it involves extremely local ingredients, while others might use ingredients sourced on the other side of the globe. The chef has learned about food, cooking it, and marrying it.
That is what the chef knows. Our chef looks Asian and is tasting a soup. The soup must be hot because it is barely grazing his lower lip. Is it a Japanese Miso soup or a Thai Penang curry? We'll never know but there is a certain delight in the eyes of the chef.
Thinking about it, his eyes are closed in concentration, maybe they are not Asian at all, looking at the thick eyebrows and nose perhaps he is Italian or French. Is it an onion soup, then? Whatever it is, our chef needs to watch his weight! His jacket doesn't fit any more.
I like to cook, and I would like the CUOCO to represent me in my kitchen: I like the expressiveness as it makes me contemplate the art. In this case the art of cooking well and the infinite possibilities. What a wonderful world we live in!
