Favorite Quotes

Some favorite quotes on dinning or cooking are fun to share. I have many throughout my cookbook.
Additional motivation came to me after having read “Ma Gastronomie” about the cooking of world class chef Fernand Point written by his wife quite a while after he died. The book is outstanding but sadly is missing many of the fabulous dishes we had at his five star “La Pyramide” in Vienne, France. Fernand Point was a recognized genius in France who won the world’s heart with his cuisine. 

The great chef Fernand Point wrote: “Cookbooks are as alike as brothers. The best
one is the one you write yourself.”

Cooks who do not love their patrons should not be allowed in the kitchen.

There is no excuse possible for bad soup.

A quick sign of more bad cusine to follow is poor bread. 

I always taste the vegetables first, if these are perfect one can look forward to a great meal.

Dinning is about great food and great company. 

Best cooks are those cooking with passion!
