The just-wed cook brings to the new household no carefully copied collection of the family's cherished recipes, but a spanking new edition of Fannie Farmer or The Joy of Cooking.”

John Thorne, American food writer

 

“Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single most significant trademarks of a culture.”

Mark Kurlansky, 'Choice Cuts' (2002)
