Cooking Famous Quotes:

    Do you know where chicken nuggets really come from?
    - Scoutmaster Hall
    Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors - it's how you combine them that sets you apart. - Wolfgang Puck
    If you're cooking and not making mistakes, you're not playing outside your safety zone. I don't expect it all to be good. I have fat dogs because I scrap that stuff out the back door. - Guy Fieri
