Edible Art Creations To Enjoy In May

Takumi by Daisuke Mori

Chef Daisuke was inspired by the passion, fear, elegance and limitless potential of Jiro Yoshihara’s “Red Circle” from the Gutai art movement. “The work looks simple and abstract, yet incites a myriad of emotions and a sense of infinite possibility. Cooking as a concept is quite similar: how you wish to display your work, what technique you use, the ingredients and colours you select. There are also infinite possibilities.” Chef Daisuke seeks to contrast perfection with the very human beauty of imperfection, as shown in his dish, “Colour Expression”. The dish sees an arrangement of vibrant red ingredients including tomato, carrot, blue lobster (when cooked becoming bright red in colour), red bell pepper and more. The contrast of the red against the black Japanese ceramic and the imperfect circle of tomato puree meeting the red lobster symbolises the ever shifting tides of perfection and imperfection, while reflecting the artwork it was inspired by, as seen through Chef Daisuke’s artistic culinary lens.
