"To cook is to create. And to create well...
is an act of integrity, and faith."

Fine Cuisine with Art Infusion

"To cook is to create. And to create well...
is an act of integrity, and faith."


"No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook
in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice
and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers."

~ Laurie Colwin

“Cookbooks have always been an integral part of my life in the kitchen.
In fact, it was a cookbook that first interested me in becoming a
professional chef…
These books are to me what travel publications are to globe-trotters – the
closest one can come to experiencing, or re-experiencing a place without
actually ‘visiting’ it. Indeed, good food is a lot like travel. It stimulates
and surprises. It satisfies our craving for the exotic and the unknown.
Good food is an adventure.”
~ Chef Alfred Portale, in 'Gotham Bar & Grill Cookbook icon'
