Food Philosophy – Journal Entry 13/01/2018

So I’m sitting here in front of my computer eating a bowl of ice cream with banana slices and I just started thinking about what food means to me. I know, it’s a weird thing to think about, but I can’t help it because I’ve been binge watching Food Wars for the past month haha.

I’m someone who loves to eat and I’m not very picky with my food, but one thing I can not forgive is being served food that doesn’t taste good. I know I’m not really the one to talk about how good a plate of food is prepared and served, but if I walk into a restaurant or some fast food joint, I do have some expectations, like being served food that is worth eating.

I have heard from people that said you don’t really have the right to say how bad the food is if you’re not a cook yourself, but if I am a customer then I should be eating food that is satisfactory, that’s the most minimal expectation you should have. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with pointing out if something doesn’t taste bad, just don’t be rude about it.

That aside, food to me is not just primarily for survival, but even if it is, all the more reason why it should be made delicious. If eating just means you get to live another day and that’s all that matters to you, then you might as well drink soylent. That may be too extreme, but from my own experience, my stepfather who supposedly had worked in a restaurant has the worst cooking in our family, and yet he complains about everything that my mother cooks and how the food taste bad or does not have enough nutritional value.

This is another point I want to talk about; the ingredients. It doesn’t matter how nutritional or how high the quality of the ingredients are, if what you make out of it taste bad then you’re just wasting food. Food is something that you consume on a daily basis, so why not put in some effort and make it delicious? It’s going into your system and your benefiting from the nutrients, the only thing that would ruin that is the taste.

I don’t know, is it just me? lol

Anyway, that’s all I wanted to talk about today haha. Been a very boring start to the year and I haven’t planned much of anything. I’ll try to post a few times per week if I’m going out or whatever new comes along. I might also share some past experiences or give any advice if you have anything you would like to share with me.

That would be all for today, talk to you later~
