Here is a fascinating article on a different kind of culinary mastery - neurocuisine. A chef (and neurosurgeon!), Miguel Sánchez Romera, is opening a new restaurant in New York that offers tastes to stimulate your brain. He had already successfully owned a Michelin starred restaurant in Spain but was lured by Sant Chatwal, an Indian-born hospitality tycoon to open a New York restaurant in his new hotel this June.
His meals are a feast for the eyes which have direct connections to the brain and also are delicious, healthy and filling as well. But at $245/meal, his food is not for everyone. It will be interesting to read more about Romera's ideas in the future....if you can read Spanish, he has published some books already: http://www.miguelsanchezromera.com/
and here are some photos of his dishes:
