Brian gets some ink

Breaking down the art of charcuterie with Brian Polcyn - Crain's Detroit Business - Detroit News and Information

"It's like a true musician. A truly great musician feels the music instead of just reading notes. The same goes with cooking at this high of a level.

Chefs are craftsmen. Think about a chef like a cabinet-maker. Imagine walking into someone's house and seeing a beautiful cabinet. You begin to notice the intricacies in the wood, the way its fashioned together, the way the grain plays into the design. It can be a work of art.

But in order to get to that point, the cabinet maker has to know a lot about the wood he uses, where it's from and how to work with a specific type of wood.

The same goes with food."
