“Today's water arguments reflect a growing unease about how to proceed when old certainties are being pushed aside and new options seem limited or unappealing. But the stark warnings implicit in Wisconsin's poisoned wells, the intersex and dying fish of Chesapeake Bay, Lake Mead's recored-low waterline, the decay of levees across the country, and the resource war in Alaska's Bristol Bay, cannot be ignored.”
Alex Prud'Homme, The Ripple Effect: The Fate of Fresh Water in the Twenty-First Century

“What impressed me most was how hard [Julia Child] worked, how devoted she was to the "rules" of la cuisine française while keeping herself open to creative exploration, and how determined she was to persevere in the face of setbacks. Julia never lost her sense of wonder and inquisitiveness. She was, and is, a great inspiration.”
Alex Prud'Homme, My Life in France

“I have been seduced and I have seduced. But this, dear friends, and gentle mouths...this was a Seduction.”
Alex Prud'Homme, The French Chef in America: Julia Child's Second Act
