Cooking is no longer seen as a means to sustain ourselves. There is much love, passion, and creativity in food, not to mention the science and chemistry behind creating superb dishes!
Urban Table Culinary Arts are on a mission to prove that cooking isn’t just cooking in the modern world. It has form, function, and design. It can forge friendships and bring people closer together, and we can show you how!
Cooking—More Than Sustenance
There are loads of reasons why cooking is about more than just nutrition. We listed some of the best of them here for you to follow.
Cooking to Relax and Enjoy Life
Sitting down at the dinner table and eating together has long been a popular way for a family to dine together. We say we should bring this tradition back! In European cultures, the food is shared, elbows are on the table, and bread is passed around, which is a tradition we would love to see here in America, and we are working towards it, one meal at a time.
Cooking as a Way to Give thanks
Cooking something for someone, baking some cakes, making extra for the neighbors, or taking food parcels to your grown children, is a way to show thankfulness. It can be a sign of gratitude and can mean more than a gift. If cooking weren’t about appreciation, we wouldn’t feast at Thanksgiving!
A Way to Preserve Your Past
Cooking is also a way to preserve traditions. Do you have an old recipe book, passed down from earlier generations of your family? In this way, cooking keeps little snippets of what it was like to live back then. It can also be used to preserve and expand on some of those childhood tastes you loved the most.
A Way to Connect!
Food, baking, cooking—all of it is a chance to re-connect with the people in our lives that matter the most. Just like sitting around the table and sharing a meal allows everyone to report back on their day, the shared experience of a mother handing a recipe to a daughter can never be bought. Cooking is priceless memories of just such moments.
Cooking for Stress
When was the last time you took a little hour on the weekend and baked something wonderful? Cooking and baking are incredibly rewarding because, after all your work, you have some tasty treats to show for it. Cooking and baking can remove you from the stresses of everyday life and put you in a calm place again. In the modern world, everyone should be trying it!
