I think traditions are extremely important, because traditions are built over centuries, over years, over generations and traditions make the basis upon which we form everything. Traditions help to form the basis upon which you become creative, explorative and more dynamic. Following old recipes is good, modernising them is the ultimate thing, but never losing the focus on where it came from and what it means, and how it was derived.
The reasons for using the finest ingredients in cooking is based upon the simple fact that when you start good, you end good. Having the best ingredients that you can afford to buy for your business and then turning it into something that is representative of yourself to your customer is the very basis and the ethos upon which you build your business, so it’s extremely important.
I come from a culture that is purely reliant on, and that evolved around old remedies based on roots, herbs, spices and medicinal use. I prepare a homemade remedy ready for winter that includes turmeric, honey and ginger.
I think, even though we live in a very modern, very advanced, very electronic, science-driven, technology-driven society, wisdom comes from knowledge, wisdom comes from happenings, wisdom comes from experience, and I think if you forget the words of wisdom, no matter how challenging the modern technology is, and how much it gives you in return, you will have to delve into wisdom to succeed.
