This is a post to officially announce the launch of my Culinary Language Project. The purpose of this is to create a pictogram based language to describe the flavor of food with out the use of words.
Why a universal language to describe food?
Writing menu descriptions has always been a challenge for me. When I worked in Manhattan, dinners from all over the world read my descriptions. Often times I would have to go to the table and help them order because they could not read English.
There had to be a better way then using sign language and bringing physical ingredient into the dining room to accomplish this.
For many years I thought about solving this problem and finally settled on a wordless language dedicated to food.
There is a lot of work to be done creating this new system but I am up for the challenge.
As I work it through I will post my progress.
All prays for success are welcome!
