Painting for Food
When Paul came to Denmark to cook at Søllerød Kro, he couldn’t speak Danish. Instead he had to draw his dishes to his staff. The thing is that he’s got great skill (he’s also a very talented photographer. Check out his Instagram).
His painting of dishes has shaped his cooking. He composes flavors thinking in colors – you know how the flavor of bitter chocolate is bright purple, for example?
These are som of Pauls notes for composing dishes – note how colors are equally important to words and ingredients, and how graphics are more important than descriptions. Some people just have a visual, graphic intelligence, and you can use that to design your own food language.
