The Koreans have two words for flavor. There is the flavor of the ingredients: "food taste", and the flavor that comes from the way the ingredients are grown, handled and prepared: the "hand taste." As beautifully depicted in Like Water for Chocolate, the chef truly influences the energetics of a meal.
I help people do kitchen "makeovers" where I go through the fridge, pantry and kitchen and we discuss all the harmful foodstuffs, get rid of unwanted goods and restock everything with healthy and nourishing goods.
I prepare family meals as a private chef.
And cook for my own family and community.
