Auguste Escoffier once said, “Cooking is a science and an art, and the man who puts all his heart into satisfying his fellow men deserves consideration”. Escoffier’s encouragement embodies the fundamental purpose of this paper, to consider the cook. While he makes the statement that cooking is already an art, here, I elaborate on what he believes to be true, in an exploration of considering food, cooking, and the meal a high art form.
