I believe that food should reflect mood. I really make an effort to think ahead about how each dish should be prepared to really titillate the senses and add meaning to an event. Food gives life, true, but food also influences mood. The right combination of carefully selected ingredients can elevate a get-together from a meal to a memorable event. Dreamy, whimsical, corporate, even somber, can be conjured into a feast for the senses by finessing details like menu selection, presentation, adornment, and aroma.
