“To be a good cook you have to have a love of the good, a love of hardwork, and a love of creating. Some people like to paint pictures or do gardening, or build a boat... Other people get a tremendous pleasure out of the kitchen, because cooking is just as... imaginative an activity as drawing, or wood carving, or music... cooking draws upon your every talent — science, mathematics, energy, history, experience... the more experience you have the less likely are your experiments to end in drivel and disaster.

The more you know, the more you can create. There’s no end to imagination in the kitchen.”
