I will be out of town this weekend, and therefore will not be posting anything on my blog for a few days. But have no fear, I won’t be gone for too long. So in the mean time, I will once again leave you with some thoughts of food from those in the know.
Serve the dinner backward, do anything – but for goodness sake, do something weird.

The qualities of an exceptional cook are akin to those of a successful tightrope walker; an abiding passion for the task, courage to go out on a limb and an impeccable sense of balance.

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.

Sir, respect your dinner: Idolize it, enjoy it properly. you will be many hour in the week, many weeks in the year, and many years in your life happier if you do.
