Some Quotes and Advice About Food that I Like

Donald Link, restaurateur ( Cochon, Cochon Butcher, Herbsaint Restaurant ) and cookbook author,  New Orleans, Louisiana –

Cooking and eating are life, don’t waste it with bad restaurants and junk food. Enjoy food. When I grew up as a kid in Louisiana, everything revolved around food and family. A lot of time now, it’s something people want to get out of the way so they can do something else. Some of the best monents I’ve had with my daughter have been hanging out by the kitchen counter while filling raviolis and talking. It’s hard to talk like that when the TV is on.

Lidia Bastianich, restaurateur (Felidia, Del Posto, Esca and Becco, Lidia’s Pittsburgh and Lidia’s Kansas City  ) and cookbook author, NYC –

”  There’s a philosophy of cooking that I was raised on: use as much of your ingredients as you can. Everybody wants a chicken breast, what happens to the rest of the chicken ? Use it. “

Gordon Ramsey, entrepreneur and restaurateur ( too many to mention ), cookbook author, and television personality –

” There should be stringent laws, licensing laws in England, to make sure that produce is only used in season and season only.  I don’t want to see asparagus in the middle of December. I don’t want to see strawberries from Kenya in the middle of March. I want to see it homegrown.  Chefs should be fined if they don’t have ingredients in season on their menu.”
