Today’s Quote: Drunk on Butter Cookies

 

“Today the air in my mother’s kitchen was heavy with butter cookies baking in the oven. My mom used real butter and real vanilla, and the vanilla scent clung to my skin and hung in my hair. The kitchen was warm and cluttered with women, and I was drunk on butter cookies.”

~ Janet Evanovich (“Visions of Sugarplums”)

Today’s Quote: Why Politicize Food?

In response to being told by journalist Kim Severson that there was a lot of recent pushback on social media regarding chefs who talk about politics:

“Fuck that. Fuck that. There is nothing, look, is there anything on this planet more political than food? No there is not.”

~ Anthony Bourdain

Note: I currently have 20+ Anthony Bourdain quotes, so you’ll be seeing lots of him. And since the one above was from earlier this month–I’d say that’s a pretty good sign that there will be plenty of new content to add to my collection.

Today’s Quote: Tea is the answer to every problem

 

“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.

Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.

Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.

Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.”

~ David Walliams (“Mr Stink”)
