“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”

Closing Quote
“People have been cooking and eating for thousands of years, so if you are the very first to have thought of adding fresh lime juice to scalloped potatoes try to understand that there must be a reason for this.”
Fran Lebowitz, ‘Metropolitan Life’ (1978)

Have a peaceful day and don’t forget to wear purple today! See you back tomorrow!
