“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”

“The best way to execute French cooking is to get good and loaded and whack the hell out of a chicken. Bon appetit.”

“Maybe the cat has fallen into the stew, or the lettuce has frozen, or the cake has collapsed. Eh bien, tant pis. Usually one’s cooking is better than one thinks it is. And if the food is truly vile, then the cook must simply grit her teeth and bear it with a smile, and learn from her mistakes.”
