You’ll find pictures of chefs using all their senses; touch, smell, taste, sight, and sound, in order to prepare masterpieces in the kitchen. You’ll also find pictures of bakers losing themselves in focus as they attentively cook up a tantalizing meal.

For some, the flow of cooking is a meditative experience. Cooking helps them relax and unwind. For others, cooking is an art form and they treat the meals they prepare as a canvas. Every chop, stir and taste representing a stroke of a paintbrush. Some people love to nurture their friends and family through cooking, as a way of showing them their love and care.

In this age of fast food and technology, we can all appreciate when time and care go into the food we eat. Our gallery captures the most telling, passionate and inspiring cooking moments.
