Every time I hang out with friends, there will always be food on the table and whenever I go for a break, I will drive to a nearby restaurant for food. Now, I wonder what will happen to us if God didn’t create food. Will our life be dull? Food is no longer a necessity but something that touches every aspect of our life.
FOOD IS A BUSINESS
Before civilization, people looked for their own food to feed themselves and their families. No one thought of selling any to others. But, as years go by, we began to exchange food to satisfy our curious taste buds and source of lucrative income. Since then, our mind told us that it’s easier to buy food than producing it ourselves and opportunists see its potential as a source of income. Today, food business is at every metropolis, city, town and village around the globe.
FOOD IS AN ART
How we prepare food has also changed. From simple cooking with only salt and pepper, to adding variety of ingredients in our cooking. We started to explore new ways of cooking and those lucky ones, go on TV and became celebrity chefs for their artistic cooking. Cooking competitions, TV programmes, trade and expos are some of the activities promoting food as an art.
FOOD CONNECTS PEOPLE
Is there any social meeting that doesn’t involve food? Could they be birthdays, weddings, reunions, corporate meetings, seminars, conventions? No matter what event we are involved in, we get connected through food. Food is part of the reasons why people meet each other. It makes us sit together and start having conversations. Just like a famous saying “Wen you feed someone’s stomach, you open his mouth”.
Just my two cents opinion.
