In the Words of Great Cooks

In the Words of Great Cooks

The words we use and choose not to use reveal a great deal. Our
vocabulary demonstrates our beliefs, process of thinking, and is a
powerful tool. "Can't". "Cannot". "But". These are words
deleted from my vocabulary. These word clouds were created
using Many Eyes out of curiosity. While these visualizations do
not include every written or spoken word by these culinary artists,
they do give us a good amount of insight.

Danny Boome:  Former professional hockey player in Great Britain, chef, and face of the anti-drug campaign in the United Kingdom.  

Julia Child:  Master of French cuisine, star of several television programs on the Public Broadcasting Service, and cookbook author.

Gordon Ramsay:  The gruff star of various television series, such as Hell's Kitchen, The F Word, Kitchen Nightmares, and MasterChef.  Gordon began in football (soccer) and faced several injuries.  He went on at age 19 into cooking and restauranteering, earning several accolades including Michelin stars.


Antonin Careme: One of the first famous chefs in history.
Careme developed his skills and innovated the culinary
world of the 1800s. His achievements include baking for
Napoleon's wedding and cooking for King George IV
of England.

    1. Thanks for visiting, the start of my website really came as a way to share ideas that friends and customers always asked me about.
