Personal Gastronomy is a symphony [or your favourite rock CD] – the
dish ingredients, a glass of wine [or beer] are all notes.
A dish is a chord. A poor dish or bottle of wine is discord. Indigestion is muzac.
A meal is a tune.. The list of food and drink consumed at the meal is the score. We play the same tune again in a few weeks, perhaps to a different audience. It is one of our favourite tunes. We hope it will be so for others.
We all have several, even lots of favourite dishes which, individually included in our gastronomic tunes, serve as a chorus.
Your personal diet and gastronomic lifestyle are the final symphony. When you are my guest you hear one of my tunes. Later, you may be my host when you play me one of your tunes.
Different groups of people eat where acceptable music [or even muzac] can be heard.
