life's lessons learned & passed on from our favorite chefs and food personalities



“Every time you taste something new, you add 75 days to your life.”

- Japanese Proverb





“You can’t hurry love, and you can’t rush puff pastry, either. You can knead too much, and you can be too needy. Always, warmth is what brings pastry to rise. Chemistry creates something amazing; coupled with care and heat, it works some kind of magic to create this satisfying, welcoming, and nourishing thing that is the base of life.”

- Kathleen Flinn,The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry, 2007.





“To succeed and have a happy life, you need common sense, a commitment to hard work and the courage to go your own way. Interest is not enough— you must be passionate about what you do. I was fortunate to find a job I loved and if you find a job you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

- Robert G. Mondavi





“The measure of achievement is not winning awards. It’s doing something that you appreciate, something you believe is worthwhile. I think of my strawberry souffle. I did that at least twenty-eight times before I finally conquered it.”

- Julia Child, “What I’ve learned”, Esquire, 2000.
