“Well, it doesn't sound particularly noble and knightly to say you've rescued the Chief Cook and Librarian, does it? And it has cut down on the number of interruptions.

And the ones who do come are at least smart enough to figure out that I'm still a princess even if the dragons call me Chief Cook”
Patricia C. Wrede, Searching for Dragons

“...anyone who willingly turns their life upside down by becoming a cook is totally insane to begin with. So many chefs that I have met are dyslexic and totally not school people or intellectuals. That could be symbolic of the kind of lifestyle that they choose to live. They all drink a lot, do a lot of drugs, drink a shitload of coffee and espresso. They don’t sleep much, and obviously don’t have much of a life outside the kitchen. A cook’s friend is a cook, there isn’t much time for a non-cook friend or girlfriend. And time really isn’t the issue so much as it’s a lifestyle and a culture that is very hard to understand or identify with unless you are on the inside. Cooks hang out with cooks because there is nobody else awake, hungry and totally wired at 2am on a Tuesday.”
Jennifer Topper, 29 Jobs and a Million Lies

“The last week hadn’t been any better, come to think of it. On Monday they arrived at Gorda, just to find that the cargo of electronics he was to ship to Beowulf had been taken by another freighter for a lower fee. It took him until Wednesday before he found another cargo – which had to reach Earth by Saturday. The last straw was when his crew mutinied a day out of the Hermes system and demanded a pay increase. The union tended to call that sort of thing “collective bargaining”, not actually mutiny, but hey – the results are the same. He tended to favor the term “piracy”, but this wasn’t the high seas and out here, there were real pirates to worry about. His former crew had also wanted more time off and a better cook – at least one who knew how which end of a frying pan to hold. He was unable to comply, and so was forced to stop at Beowulf anyway. That was the last time he saw them. Fortunately for him, Weaver, Fuller and Jang opted to stay with him. Whether it was out of loyalty, or perhaps just convenience, he never knew.”
Christina Engela, Blachart

“Life is no different than cooking and to make a great meal, be a great cook!”

“Dad?" Jesus asked.
"Yes, son?" God replied.
"Why do you keep a large bottle of love in the kitchen?" Jesus asked his dad.
"Because I put it in everything that I make," God told his son.
"Then, that's why everything is so beautiful, and lovely," Jesus said with awe in his voice.
"Yes, it is," God said.
"You know what dad," Jesus started to say as he turned towards his father, "I want to be a cook just like you one day."
"You already are," God said with love in his voice as he hugged his son.”
Anthony T. Hincks
