Watching this Kaiseki chef putting food on plates is fascinating

Food all goes down the same but there's so much beauty in food and each ingredient that chefs like Niki Nakayam of Los Angeles Japanese Kaiseki restaurant n/naka turn the idea of putting plate of food into an art form. You're no longer eating protein and vegetables, but edible art on a plate.

It's the meticulous detail in the plating (along with the deliciousness of the food, of course) that allows us to understand how much she respects her craft. Listen to her talk about what Kaiseki means in Japanese and how she executes it at her amazing restaurant.

Meowton, we got a problem...

So gorgeous it'd be hard to tell the decorative elements of the plate apart from the food, so I'd probably end up eating all of it (and still be hungry). ;)
