 QUOTE
"The fact is that it takes more than ingredients and technique
to cook a good meal. A good cook puts something of himself into
the preparation -- he cooks with enjoyment, anticipation,
spontaneity, and he is willing to experiment."
Pearl Bailey, Pearl's Kitchen, (1973)

"Woman's success in lifting men out of their way of life nearly
resembling that of the beasts -- who merely hunted and fished
for food, who found shelter where they could in jungles, in
trees, and caves -- was a civilizing triumph."

 QUOTE
"The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish,
admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a
cold fire, the fire of discontent, not of passion. Tomatoes are
lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of
frivolity. Beets are deadly serious."
Tom Robbins
