"Food had power. It could inspire, astonish, shock, excite, delight, and impress. It had the power to please me…and others. This was valuable information."

"Garlic is divine. Few food items can taste so many distinct ways, handled correctly. Misuse of garlic is a crime. Old garlic, burnt garlic, garlic cut too long ago and garlic that has been tragically smashed through one of those abominations, the garlic press, are all disgusting. Please treat your garlic with respect."
