Cuisine is the recognizable expression of a climate and culture; it is not prohibitively abstract. Grand vin wines are the bottled spirit of the land and its stewards; it cannot be replicated elsewhere, it is a time capsule of a season in the sun. Architecture is unique to its place, linear in a world of cycles, the stage not the play.
Take a breath, have some calm, enjoy and appreciate the world around you. The sun and the sky; the plants and the land; the simple sustenance on your plate; the years of craft in your glass and the room in which you sit.
