Laughter is brightest where food is best.
Cooking is at once one of the simplest and most gratifying of the arts, but to cook well one must love and respect food.
The preparation of good food is merely another expression of art, one of the joys of civilized living
The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.
I like a cook who smiles out loud when he tastes his own work. Let God worry about your modesty; I want to see your enthusiasm.
~Robert Farrar Capon
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
My kitchen is a mystical place, a kind of temple for me. It is a place where the surfaces seem to have significance, where the sounds and odors carry meaning that transfers from the past and bridges to the future.
