Art on a plate

The title of the post on The Sprouted Kitchen that accompanied this picture is "Deconstructed Beet Stack."

That sounds kind of ridiculous. In fact, when I read it, I immediately had this gut reaction of "What the hell kind of new wave cooking shit is this going to be?" Gee. Am I a cynic or just not very nice today?

Truth be told, I generally wish more fine dining restaurants would stick to the "less is more" theme...or the less complicated, the better. A meal with a few ingredients and not a lot of fuss can be one of the best of your life.

That being said, I support creativity in the kitchen, so I'll shut up with my rant.

This meal, I must say, looks divine. If I were any good at "plating," I'd make this at our next dinner party.
