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.
