The goal of Love On A Plate is to create a plate of food that has 5-star flavor, balance and nutrition. In the Vedic text of Auyrveda, food is medicine for the body and the soul. The ‘medicine’ is created in the preparation, combination and use of primary and secondary ingredients. Layering flavors, accenting colors and balancing the salt, sweet, astringent, bitter, sour and pungent raw ingredients to produce ‘love’ for the body on a single plate is the heart of this show.
The individual recipes are combined to create an entire ‘plate’ or meal in which detailed attention is paid to complexity, complementarity and composition. Each plate is a balanced combination of an average portion (based on 2,000 calories a day) of whole grains, vegetables, fruit and protein. The recipes for the meals are titled using the above pattern: grains, protein, veggies and fruit or sweet.
Listed below are links to the recipes from each show. The titles are in an abbreviated form in an attempt to let you know what we created on that particular 'Love on A Plate'. Enjoy!
