Mani di Chef | Baiocco
The craft of the Chef is a tiring job that gives moments of dream and extreme sensory and aesthetic pleasure to people. What’s behind the evanescent scenes and the classic glossy food photos of dishes on “Michelin” restaurants tables, however, is often not enough known by insiders nor even by the clients of a restaurant in terms of craftsmanship and know-how.
Fascinated from mastery of these taste explorers and from their ability to compose dishes obtained after a long and hard research, I entered in their kitchens on tiptoe. The appearance of the realization of the dishes adds a component of perceptual enjoyment of the creativity of the Chef and allows the viewer to “interact” with the photographs in terms of empathy with the process of implementation of the dishes, as it has been for me that, discreetly, approached the reportage project.
