Compared with the electronic screen, paper and pen can make us feel the beautiful life more easily, because the writing and typesetting process is a process of creation. 

When writing a recipe book, we categorize cuisine styles as well as list the operation steps. Besides, we deeply study the names and measurement unit of ingredients. It is worth mentioning that we are the creator ourselves.
As we select dish names, it is like we are preparing the list of programs. After that, we spend time making them and take them to the dining table personally. This process is like the process where artists prepare for the performance on the stage.
Actually, foods are the same as artistic works, since both of them add tastes into our life. So, creating your own menu is creating your own artistic life.
