Table Bible 與煮同在
Table Bible創新於Table Curator餐桌策展人概念，深信餐桌，不僅是一門古老的藝術，也是每個人實現自我、感受愛與尊重的立足之地。
We are the most gentle and calm when dining, because messing with people with cutleries in their hands is never a good idea.
The story began with my mom’s peeking from the kitchen and calling, “Lay out some newspaper on the table”. These words attracted me and my taste buds like the most powerful magic spell. The thought of spiraling steam coming out of the bowl and the exquisite aroma of the golden curry sauce immersing through every grain of rice made me forget about any stress that life gave me.
No word is able to describe those wonderful days of my life. After an overwhelming and busy day, my mother could finally be by my side, thanks to the valuable dinnertime. No elaborate arrangement, just us. It was the most important family ritual.
The most comfortable State of Mind
Family dinners are often heart-warming and lively, like my childhood memories with my mother. But there are social gatherings that seem to be a tiring burden where you always try to please everyone else and compromise. This contradiction makes me realize that we reserve every chair at our dining table for those people whom we feel the most comfortable and secure with. An invitation to a meal at a friend’s home must be cherished because it is filled with trust and affection. When we put effort into preparing a delightful feast, we not only want to fill our stomachs, but also enrich each other’s life.
If comfort and relaxation are what you seek, don’t be afraid to take delight in dining alone. In this hectic city life, embrace a moment of perfectly pleasant solitude.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin says in The Physiology of Taste that, “the discovery of a new dish confers more happiness on humanity, than the discovery of a new star”. Why not create your very own culinary art with your own hands and inspired minds? How much one is able to appreciate oneself directly reflects on one’s ability to experience life.
The most delightful human relations are shared at the dining table
Possibly, in this wasteland of scattered human relations and coldness, our lonely souls have kept for ourselves something warm and blissful. We are able to feed our spirits and preserve the sacredness of important memories from each meal. Therefore, we will not lose ourselves in the bustling and cumbersome routine of life.
Beautiful food and wine soften our expressions. At a dining table, we interact, share wonderful thoughts and each other’s companion. Because of this, we feel truly content, comforted and powerful.
For thousands of years, humans have built their cultures around food and rituals. A dining table now contains dramatic elements and meanings involving complex issues of classes and social context.
Table Bible is a concept developed from dining experience curators, with the strong believe that a dining table is not only an ancient art form, but also a foothold for self-realization, love and respect. We hope to simplify this axis between dining and the sense of self, extend our kindness into the crowds, and bring back respect into our families. Through this, we will work to find the balance and security of belonging, thus building healthy connection with the rest of the world.
On this platform of Table Bible, there is always a chair for you. With every bite of food we take, let us begin with relishing nourishment and blessing.
