IMPROVISING THE ART OF CULINARY

Draw, draw, and draw until precise as my mentors from art and architecture school shared with us as a daily reminder post-it. 

The drafting table of Nat’s Noshes is set up with a Moleskin-ruled notebook and a Sharpie pen. Brainstorming develops for food pyramid-compliant and well-cup-measured clean foods.

These culinary pieces of art are all homemade and not pre-packaged. Berries used in these stories came fresh from the orchard farm and pomegranates came from the produce aisle, rather than pre-packaged. 

Since mid April, I have been channeling my passion for art and design into creative baking and cooking, via colors, textures, scents, visuality, plating, and presentation.

I designed a website from the start and have been documenting short stories inspired from childhood memories, adventures during the pandemic, and positive experiences into creative, noshable goods. This website has morphed from zero to over 3.5K views in just over three months, along with a high presence in social media. 

Please help yourself in viewing samples of creative culinary art for healthy inspiration, social distancing dinner party ideas, or as creative ways to reset and enjoy summer, as normal as possible. 

*Basically “clean” foods under 5 ingredients.

A 35th Anniversary Surprise for Two CPD Officers

“I watched a recent episode on Celebrity IOU, a new HGTV show with Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, starring the fabulous Melissa McCarthy.

Melissa surprised her aunt and uncle, who were Chicago police officers for more than 30 years, with a complete home redo for their 35th anniversary.

Melissa said, ‘They’ve given so much to Chicago’ that she and her cousin wanted to give back something to them. Melissa’s uncle said, ‘After living in the line of duty with his wife for so long, he still wants to dance with her after 35 years.’ Beautiful moment to watch in our hometown!”
