Haute Hot Food

Only for the adventurous in eating that want to tantalize their taste-buds and make food dance on their palate.

For I am not afraid of letting the food
overtake my desires, nor am I afraid of letting my desires be my food. Food is my expression, not just my livelihood. Cooking is my art, not out of responsibility, but purely out of passion.

Have we forgotten.....

Everywhere we turn, we are reminded of a complicated and busy world. We have conformed to the busyness that entangles our every breath. We have forgotten the simple pleasures in life. We have forgotten how the taste buds can dance with excitement in our mouth with each bite, and we have forgotten how to enjoy every savory morsel in our mouth. We have become a busy, ever changing, over consumed, over stimulated society that has forgotten the simple pleasures.
When was the last time you looked your "Sunday" best? When was the last time you shined your shoes, when did you last put on a party dress "just because" , and when was the last time there was a cocktail hour at a social event? These little pleasures seen to be a lost art. Why? When did the world that surrounds tell us to be numb to everything around us? Our mouth is a sensual palette that awaits new adventures around every corner. Delight in the the little things that await. Enjoy every moment, and savor every second. Our tongue is no exception. Make the flavors come alive. Let the bites linger on your tongue. Let the aromas overtake the senses. Food is a lost art that needs, once again, a painter to lift the brush, and take your breath away.
There are moments in time where simplicity is best.we have forgotten.
we are a smothered, flamed broiled, deep fried, hurry up, microwave, extra cheese, super sized world that needs to be stripped and shown it's true colors. Food is tantalizing, food is art, and food is sexy. Enjoy the real flavors, and savory the moment.

Only for those......
