MAD2 / Appetite

During the first MAD Symposium, we delved into the theme of vegetation. For the second, we turned our attention from the natural world to the inner one. Appetite keeps us curious, it compels us to explore the world with our senses: our ability to taste, touch, smell, see and to think. As chefs, we work and live through appetite. Knowing the techniques of our craft, the science of cooking, or the seasons of produce, is of course valuable, but during this weekend, we aimed to deepen our understanding. We wanted to investigate the intuition that drives our everyday routine and inspires creativity.
