Daily Culinary Quote: Kitchen Math (isn’t hard…)

“If I’m teaching girls that do love to make cookies and do love fashion – that they can use math as a part of that – you think that’s me saying, come on girls you belong in the kitchen, you belong shopping? Or, do you think it’s me showing them how math is part of all their life, even the part they thought it had nothing to do with?”

Culinary Quote Dump Day: People in kitchens can be dangerous

 

“It’s amazing the relationships you forge in a kitchen. When you cooperate in an environment that’s hot. Where there’s a lot of knives. You’re trusting your well-being with someone you’ve never before met or known.”

~ Alexandra Guarnaschelli


“my college doesn’t allow us to carry pepper spray for self defense cause they claim its a weapon.

i’m at culinary school.

every single student is carrying several hundred dollars worth of knives around with them and they teach classes on how to break down whole animals easily with said knives.

but no pepper spray.

no that’s way too dangerous”

“This is a world where everyone you work with has plenty of boiling liquids, blunt objects and sharp knives ready at hand. Have a sense of humor – you’ll need it.”

~ Chef Harold (posted on Chef2Chef.net)


“Those who are so eager for women and girls to go back to the kitchen might think again about just what it is we might be up to in there. You can plan a lot of damage from a kitchen. It’s also where the knives are kept.”

~ Laurie Penny


“Do not taunt a man for wearing chef pants. He has sharper knives than you, and he knows how to use them.”

Daily Culinary Quote: Bacon, chocolate, and Borgs

He was all healthy and in shape. She’d first poison him by introducing chocolate cake to his diet. And then bacon. No one could resist bacon. It was like the Borg from Star Trek. Any second now biomechanical humanoids would come marching out of the forest. “Resistance is futile. You will eat fattening chocolate.”

~ Celia Kyle (“Rebecca”)

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”)
