Soul Food

Food is the only element in our culture that reaches our consciousness through all five of the senses: We can feel its smooth and rough texture, see its diverse colors and shapes, hear it boil or sizzle in preparation for the table, smell its sweet or pungent aroma, and finally tastes it wonders, and savor every moment of the experience.
