We eat the food in a generally accepted order. Admit as correct certain guidelines and sequences. In a meal, we serve salads and vegetables to the entrees, while fish and meats are often the main courses.

Famous cooks and chefs of contemporary cuisine, without going any further, present seductive sweet proposals when it comes to appetizers, sauces of very reduced fruit or succulent meats of well-caramelized crusts. Ingenious combinations, adapted techniques, new flavors and, sometimes, good nostrats.
