I have been busy getting ready for the upcoming holidays that are quickly coming upon us and have not been spending as much time in the kitchen these last few days as I normally do. You know, there are so many other things that need to be done at this time of the year, on top of all the cooking and baking. There are Christmas cards, which is what I have been busy working on these last few days, cleaning, presents, decorating, etc. Because I have been busy with all of these other preparations, I am going to leave you with a few more quotes from the pros of the both in the kitchen and words of prose. But have no fear, Jeanne will be back in the kitchen, cooking up a storm again, in no time.
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
Cuisine is when things taste like themselves.
When we no longer have good cooking in the world, we will have no literature, nor high and sharp intelligence, nor friendly gatherings, nor social harmony.
~ Marie-Antoine Careme, “the King of Chefs, and the Chef of Kings” ~
We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends, we may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
~Owen Meredith (Edward R. Bulwer-Lytton)~
