For the steak I used two very handy, new tools in ZBrush 4 - Shadowbox and Spotlight. (Fig.04). I was going to experiment with colors and textures later in Photoshop, so the steak was the only textured part inside ZBrush (Fig.05).

The image was rendered with another new ZBrush feature, Best-Preview Render, in a few different passes such Ambient Occlusion, Shadows, SSS, Specular highlights etc (Fig.06).

All the passes were composed in Photoshop.

I set the AO layer to Multiply mode and Shadow in Screen mode and then started to experiment with different color schemes by painting different colors below the composed layers (Fig.07).

seems to me u didn't have the gutts to admit what particular "culture" is mis-shown in Your work... the right hand is the clue...

Very nice work, however when you stated that you wanted to make it universal and not attached to any culture, I think it fails on a couple of points. 1. The text in the background is stylized in a way that at first glance it seems like its Arab writing. Upon further inspection the first assumption is eliminated. 2. The womans attire also has a lot of middle eastern influence and given the element above also seems to be geared again towards an arab or middle eastern culture. I think these elements could be revisited a little more to make them indeed more universal

Thanks for your comment. Yes, a pose is stiff, but it is for the reason, my goal was to refer to symbolic figures from Eastern Orthodox icons.As for the "chew thing" my intention was to capture the moment when she keeps a large bit of food inside her mouth but not chewing.It is a conversation.She is about to say something, she has to stop chewing for a while, a large bit of meat stretches her cheek.There is no muscles tension.

Solid process; however, the end result has a stiff pose, and the mouth does not appearing to chewing, it simply appears to be deformed.
