Text Quotes
Unlike some people, who love to go out, I love to stay home  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Dinner alone is one of life’s pleasures  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Both happy and sad people can be cheered up by a nice meal,  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) It is not just the Great Works of mankind that make a culture. It is the daily things, like what people eat and how they serve it.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) It is often to the wary that the events in life are unexpected. Looser types-people who are not busy weighing and measuring every little thing-are used to accidents, coincidences, chance, things getting out of hand, things sneaking up on them. They are the happy children of life, to whom life happens for better or worse  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) There is really a je ne sais quoi about turkey cooking - the air of festivity, the family squabbles, the constant basting - that does not apply to the turkey breast, which is, really, a convenience of food... A turkey without seasonal angst is like a baseball game without a national anthem, a winter without snow, a birthday party without candles  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) It is always wise to make too much potato salad. Even if you are cooking for two, make enough for five. Potato salad improves with age - that is, if you are lucky enough to have any left over  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) It is a fact of life that people give dinner parties, and when they invite you, you have to turn around and invite them back. Often they retaliate by inviting you again, and you must then extend another invitation. Back and forth you go, like Ping-Pong balls, and what you end up with is called social life  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) The best way to feel at ease in the kitchen is to learn at someone’s knee  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) When it comes to cakes and puddings, savouries, bread and tea cakes, the English cannot be surpassed.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) There is nothing like roast chicken. It is helpful and agreeable, the perfect dish no matter what the circumstances. Elegant or homey, a dish for a dinner party or a family supper, it will not let you down.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) I come from a coffee-loving family, and you can always tell when my sister and I have been around, because both of us collect all the dead coffee from everyone’s morning cup, pour it over ice, and drink it. This is a disgusting habit.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Cooking is like love. You don’t have to be particularly beautiful or very glamorous, or even very exciting to fall in love. You just have to be interested in it. It’s the same thing with food.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) The fact is that modern life has deprived us of life’s one great luxury: time  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) The sharing of food is the basis of social life, and to many people it is the only kind of social life worth participating in.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Dinner alone is one of life’s pleasures  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) The sharing of food is the basis of social life, and to many people it is the only kind of social life worth participating in  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) I myself am not particularly interested in restaurant cooking. I don’t really want to learn how to make a napoleon. I’d much rather learn how to make a very good lemon cake, which you can make in your own home. I like plain, old-fashioned home food.  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) A person cooking is a person giving. Even the simplest food is a gift  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) The sharing of food is the basis of social life  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Fulfillment leaves an empty space where longing used to be  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) We know that without food we would die. Without fellowship, life is not worth living  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Friendship is not possible between two women one of whom is very well dressed  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) Both happy and sad people can be cheered up by a nice meal  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) The old days were slower. People buttered their bread without guilt and sat down to dinner en famille  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) I do not believe that you have to spend a lot of money to eat well: it is hard to beat a plain old baked potato  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) To feel safe and warm on a cold wet night, all you really need is soup  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) For the socially timid, the kitchen is the place to be. At least, it is a place to start  (Laurie Colwin Quotes) When I was alone, I lived on eggplant, the stove top cook’s strongest ally  (Laurie Colwin Quotes)
