“The only time to eat diet food is while you are waiting for the steak to cook,”

Julia Child (1912 – 2004)

That line epitomises the character of this little book of humorous quotes, common-sense techniques, modern and historical advice & tips, for the kitchen, complied by award-winning author Lewis Esson.
“Keep Calm & Cook On”, the very title is advice itself that any chef or cook under pressure can take solace in. You’re not saving lives after all and it is only food! How best to prepare your cheese board, what to look for in fresh fish, the secrets of a good salad dressing and many other helpful snippets of wisdom are compiled herein.
“I believe that if ever I had to practice cannibalism, I might manage,
if there were enough tarragon around.” James Beard – Chef & Food Writer (1903-1985)

    Chicago's own Charlie Trotter evidently said that “A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that’s when cuisine is truly exciting.” I love that quote because it also embodies those just learning how flavors, like melodies, go together. Structure and art, together in forms that arouse our minds, hearts, and souls.Evin in CorkTwitter: @FreckledPastIFBA: @CookingPeasQs
