“Don't be too daring in the kitchen. For example, don't suddenly get involved with shallots. Later, when you are no longer a Lonely Guy, you can do shallots. Not now. If you know coriander, stay with coriander and don't fool around. Even with coriander you're on thin ice, but at least you've got a shot, because it's familiar. Stay with safe things, like pepper.”
Bruce Jay Friedman (1930- )
‘The Lonely Guy Cookbook’ (1976)

Edna Ferber (1887-1968) American writer
“The history of government regulation of food safety is one of government watchdogs chasing the horse after it's out of the barn.”
David A. Kessler, M.D. (FDA Commissioner)
