Text Quotes
I am actually a very gentle person  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) I worked in 40 restaurants over a five-year period  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) You can’t be afraid to not have everything figured out. There’s too much pressure on young people today to have it all figured out when they’re in college.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that’s when cuisine is truly exciting.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Any fool can be happy. What I’m interested in is satisfaction. There’s got to be more to life than just being happy. You’ve got to be fulfilled. You’ve got to be satisfied; philosophically satisfied is what I mean.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) If people give me a year or two of their best effort, then I am their friend for life  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Life’s too short. You may be on this planet for 80 years at best or who knows, but you can’t just pedal around and do the same thing forever.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) I timed my previous wife’s pregnancy to the moment to have my son born on Bob Dylan’s 50th birthday. There is no bigger Bob Dylan fan than me. You don’t just time the day and impregnate your wife to get your kid to be born on Bob Dylan’s 50th birthday.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) The body cannot produce enzymes in perfect combinations to metabolize your foods as completely as the food enzymes created by nature do. This results in partially digested fats, proteins, and starches that can clog your body’s intestinal tract and arteries.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) There has been no great surprise, no sudden revelation. I knew pretty much what I was getting into. What I’ve learned is that a restaurant can be as much of an art as you want it to be, but it has to be a successful business first.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) For over 20 years, I have been saying that Chicago is by far one of the greatest food cities in the world.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) I got on a Dostoyevsky kick right after college. I started with ‘Crime and Punishment,’ went on to ‘The Possessed’ and then ‘The Brothers Karamazov’ and ‘The Idiot.’  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) You know the old adage that the customer’s always right? Well, I kind of think that the opposite is true. The customer is rarely right.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) I took the obligatory economics classes in school, but I’ve long been a fan of the Milton Friedman philosophy and its libertarian bent: One must be free to do what one wants to do, as long as you don’t harm another. This is the seminal treatise on free-market economics.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) All four elements were happening in equal measure - the cuisine, the wine, the service, and the overall ambience. It taught me that dining could happen at a spiritual level.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) If you ever want to get anywhere in life, you’re going to have to push it, and somebody’s going to push you to get there. End of story.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Maybe it’s good to be traumatized in your youth, to make you think differently and step outside the box. Anybody can be comfortable, but if you get your world rocked, shaken as it were, then maybe it causes you to really go to a whole other level in a different way.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) If you go around the kitchen and ask my employees what they want to be doing in three to five years, most of them, if they’re being honest, will tell you that they don’t want to be working for me. They want to have their own place. And I think that’s great.  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) My fantasy is to have a restaurant where there are no written menus, but where you just ask people, What are you in the mood for? Fish? Meat? White wine?  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Excellence is about fighting and pursuing something diligently, with a strict and determined approach to doing it right. It’s okay if there are flaws in the process - it makes it more interesting  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) It’s a challenge to demonstrate that you can prepare some really interesting food with humble ingredients  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) My parents couldnt be looser. It was the ultimate laissez faire upbringing  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Cuisine is only about making foods taste the way they are supposed to taste  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) One must know combinations, one must have a true knowledge of food to be in the moment  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that’s when cuisine is truly exciting  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Chefs, as a whole, say yes to any project, fundraiser, or tasting because they have such a generous spirit  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Students need to learn how to think critically, how to argue opposing ideas. It is important for them to learn how to think. You can always cook  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) What I was reading was already part of my psyche, but finally someone else was saying it’s okay to walk alone  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) Well, I kind of think that the opposite is true. The customer is rarely right. And that is why you must seize the control of the circumstance and dominate every last detail: to guarantee that they’re going to have a far better time than they ever would have had if they tried to control it themselves  (Charlie Trotter Quotes) You have to be critical of what you do every day, to analyze it and be willing to push it further  (Charlie Trotter Quotes)
