I respect what the ingredients do with each other–how they interact, what the fire does to those ingredients. I respect mixing them at the proper times and bringing them out of the oven and off the stove at the proper time. I want that food to knock my guests' socks off so that all they can do is say "Mmmm" for the first two or three minutes.
