Write With Me: Is Food a Pilgrimage?

I'm interested to hear what you think of the whole Spanish avant garde Culinary Movement.

And in the same vein, is Ferran Adria a God? Can food stir your emotions?

Take a minute to get back to me on this.

I love how these three circles begin. And perhaps like a stone thrown in the pond, rings of pondering emerge.

1. A unique series of talks inspired by those culinary border pushing Spanish called: May I Have Your Order? which entertains the notion that you can Taste Words.

2. But here's a nice little cultural twist. It's happening at the Instituto Cervantes in Dublin. Yes, Ireland. What connects Dublin with Spain?

3. The first talk concerns Cooking Ideas and Dreams and features the ideas of two chefs, Iago Pazos and Marcos Cerqueiro, who began an avant garde Galician gastronomic concept, Abastos 2.0, in the wholesale food market of Santiago de Compostela, the end of the well-known Camino, or St. James Pilgrimage.

Is Food becoming the message about something more? How do you see it?
