Tasty as Brahms...?

During recent email discussions with a certain brother of mine, the question of whether food could eventually constitute an artform like music or painting was debated. I was arguing that it could not and I felt pretty sure about this, but I was also aware that I didn't want the alternative view to be correct. Music is very dear to my heart and so the idea that a good meal could ever do for someone what a beautiful piece of music does for me was intolerable.
