When considering a dish, do you first think in terms of a technique you would like to use or an ingredient?

I do however, find it a bit of a nightmare to find quality fruit and veg in this country.
I think that, for this reason, technique began to be the primary driving force for a new dish.
My drive now is the fascination of why one dish can taste fantastic to one person and disgusting to another and how we process the information from our mouths to our brain.
