Transcript of IE Application - Express Yourself

Taste is developed by the diversity of the products one can sample. I think our children today may be missing an education about food. We must teach them to know their cuisine and to know the equilibrium of nourishment. That is very important for health.

I love Japanese Cuisine!
Cooking triggers Creativity
The Chef:
What is your favourite cuisine?

This is a super tough question. I am a big fan of Japanese, French and Mediterranean cuisine but I like cooking and experimenting different cuisines.

The Chef:
Why do you like Japanese cuisine so much?

In Japanese cuisine, there is a perfect balance between the components of the meal. The flavors are intense and rich. Dishes are usually presented as an artwork and visual aspects play an important role. A couple years back, I visited Japan and that was the time when I got to know the real Japanese food. I fell in love with it!

The Chef:
How does cooking contribute to your personal development?

Cooking is an art of meditation for me. It also triggers my creativity and curiosity to search and learn new things. Every time I cook, I realize patience is an important factor to achieve good results.

Zeynep Celep, a Turkish engineer living in Switzerland, tells us about her passion for cooking and baking and how it contributes to her personal and professional development.
An Interview with a foodie
Cooking and Professional Development
The Chef:
Tell us a little about how you started cooking? Did you cook growing up?

I was drawn to cooking and baking at a young age. I grew up in a Turkish household, cooking with my mother and grandma. My love for cooking started in their kitchen and I always loved watching them when they were cooking or baking.

The Chef
: Do you come from a family of foodies?

My grandmother had a great passion for traditional Turkish cuisine. She wouldn’t mind spending hours in the kitchen and sometimes even days for special feasts. My mother has always been fond of cooking as well, trying out new recipes and eating. I guess this is one of the reasons why I enjoy cooking and eating so much.

The Chef:
Do you think cooking has any contribution to your professional development?

Of course! Cooking improves my attention to details and multi-tasking skills and they definitely help a lot for my professional development.

While cooking I also learned that learning never ends and every failure prepares you for success.

The newspaper of foodies
Cooking is an art and patience a virtue... Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing - love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist - not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love."
