Anthony Bourdain
“The life of the cook was a life of adventure, looting, pillaging and rock-and-rolling through life with a carefree disregard for all conventional morality. It looked pretty damn good to me on the other side of the line.”
Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

Anthony Bourdain
“Garlic is divine. Few food items can taste so many distinct ways, handled correctly. Misuse of garlic is a crime. Old garlic, burnt garlic, garlic cut too long ago, garlic that has been tragically smashed through one of those abominations, the garlic press, are all disgusting. Please, treat your garlic with respect.”
Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly
