Sometimes Ugly Is Beautiful

At Bello, we certainly try to make our food look beautiful.  After all, people eat with their eyes as well as their mouths.  But sometimes, an ugly dish is beautiful.

Pasta Provola is one of my favorite dishes that my mom used to make.  It’s pasta, potatoes and provola cheese with some other ingredients.  As you can see, it looks like a bit of a big cheesy mess.  But it tastes so good.  I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like it.

It has that homey feel about it as well that just makes you happy like you are sitting at the kitchen table having your mom serve you dinner.  In some ways, it can connect with you in ways that more beautiful dishes cannot.

Sometimes the best design for a product is something comfortable and maybe even a little bit ugly.
