“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”
Laurie Colwin

“The old days were slower. People buttered their bread without guilt and sat down to dinner en famille.”
Laurie Colwin, Home Cooking: A Writer in the Kitchen

“To feel safe and warm on a cold wet night, all you really need is soup.”
Laurie Colwin
