"when you acknowledge as you must, that there is no such thing as perfect food, only the idea of it,
then the purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear; to make people happy.
that's what cooking is all about."
- Thomas Keller
"The thing is - fear can’t hurt you any more than a dream."
William Golding, Lord of the Flies
