What’s all this about? A plate with a chipped-looking edge, cracks or blotchy glazing?

These are intentional, cultivated flaws. They are what make precision perceptible. Imagine a course of a meal where every detail is exactly as it should be: a perfect, powerful image. But it can only unleash its full impact in the right surroundings. A strong antithesis, rustic and seemingly incidental, underlines the exquisiteness of fine cuisine. All it takes is a bit of courage.
