    I really like this actually. I like the idea of honesty being a part of food culture, I think that watching and appreciating the work that goes into something is important to the aesthetic and understanding of a process. Architects appreciate details, because we understand the work and the process that happened. Food, for some reason, people have stopped questioning the process. We just assume that paying excessive amounts of money somehow equates a more "perfect" product… even though… the process, the cooking, the entire system happens in a kitchen that we never get to see.

    Imagine if every restaurant allowed you to see how they were preparing your food. It would really start to make me question why I'm paying as much as I am at some places where so little work and energy goes into food. What's the difference between a 30.00 dollar plate and a 12.00 dollar plate? Is there really a difference?
