Curtis Stone – “Cooking is a caring and nurturing act. It’s kind of the ultimate gift for someone, to cook for them. It creates all this beautiful stuff, conversation, appreciation, romance. All the most important things in life you do around a dinner table.”
“Some of the most important conversations I’ve ever had occurred at my family’s Dinner table.” Bob Ehrlich
