Soupy Love

Soup is a lot like a family. Each ingredient enhances the others; each batch has its own characteristics; and it needs time to simmer to reach full flavor. ~Marge Kennedy

Spice Of Life

The secret of happiness is variety, but the secret of variety, like the secret of all spices, is knowing when to use it. ~Daniel Gilbert

The Magic of Street Food

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. ~ Luciano Pavarotti “We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.” ~ Epicurus
