foodguy is spot on...tibor is like mm's clothes
tibor is your boy.
I believe I made this comparison earlier. I at least compared him to one of the bad MCers, I know that.
I get your point but they aren't that similar. Tibor is drawn to an aesthetic and everything he wears reflects his passion for the aesthetic. He works at a men's hat store (I think that is correct). He's walkin the talk. MM is more like a painter trying to come as close as possible to recreating great paintings. He puts his work out there and asks how close he got to the masterpiece. When he "owns" his technique and puts out his own food it will create some soul in his food. Tibor is more authentic and MM is a work in progress. My 2 cents.
Hey foodguy, have you eaten at Ink yet? Or anybody else? I'd like to hear about it.
i can walk in your tracks, but i can't fill your shoes.
I'd generally agree with most of this. I mimic others, and try to recreate things I've seen or eaten because that's how I attempt to learn. I don't work in a kitchen, so I'm not around anyone with a greater knowledge, therefore I rely on books, dining out, and SF to help me get better. It's been helpful having my work critiqued on here. Most people I show my pictures to in real life are always immediately impressed and fawn over them. I think the internet provides a nice barrier where one can say what they really mean. So, it's been helpful.
And, for what it's worth, I don't know if this is what I really want to do yet. I'm just not going to school this semester and all of my friends are, so this is what has been occupying my time in the meanwhile.
plus, i have to add, double-m often shares a similar sense of humor with tibor (or is it just a thick skin?). they both take a raft of *** and still stick around.
just rented a netflix yesterday you might like ... "inventing cuisine" with Pierre Gagnaire. really, really impressive.
Pierre Gagnaire doesn't get much love here but I ate at one of his smaller restaurants in Paris and enjoyed it
I've wanted to see that. I saw the Michel Bras one and it really changed the way I look at food and made me understand completely my error of mistreating and disregarding vegetables.
a tough critique is always a much more valuable tool than a circle jerk of mediocrity.
"Call any vegetable and the chances are good that the vegetable will respond to you" MM you should listen to a little Frank Zappa, it will also change the way way you look at things.
great comment gome! very original insight. excellent work. can't wait to see what you do next
i learn lots from my elders.
