Aromas waft into the nostrils as the dish arrives. Flavors explode with imagery of fabulous lands and forgotten civilizations, highlighted by local notes of earth, sun and moon. Pressing the fork into each morsel is a visual delight that alternates in texture from silky smooth to a delicate crispness. Peaceful rhythms scintillating in a background of melodic humming and chatter of others who dine. Plates are exchanged for the next course and with each move, anticipation builds. Finally, after a thorough sensual workout of the palate, desert arrives. Visually enticing and not too sweet, it is the smooth finish to a great meal. Satisfied and vitalized, the body is nourished, the mind is pleased and the soul tingles. Until the next time, life is perfect.
