About Plates of Art

This is a blog dedicated to food and thoughts! Food lovers, cooking lovers, and foodies, and the door is open to everyone.

I am a foodie, and I am simply curious. Why do people put honey on bagels, when the conventional idea says to put cream cheese? Why are there so many Starbucks stores around, and why did they recently change their plastic cups? Why do I like natto (sticky and stinky soybeans) and dislike the very similar stinky tofu? These questions make me think, and I simply want to think about it.

Cooking also stimulates the creative side of my brain. Whether I cook from a recipe book or a recipe online, or I adjust the recipe to my own desire, or cook something completely from scratch out of my head, I love the adventure and challenge and satisfaction I achieve from cooking. And I want to share this with you.

    we have so many questions about food too! that’s why we love watching alton brown’s good eats. it speaks about food science in a easy-to-understand way, which helps us cook in a more efficient and tasty way!
