+ Food is life, life is food. If you don't like
my approach you are welcome to go down to MacDonalds.
+ We've become a nation of voyeurs. We don't cook
anymore, we just watch TV programmes about cookery.
Nobody takes cookery seriously now, it's just
cheap entertainment. I'm totally to blame. I started
it all and now I'm going to go down in history
for having started a series of culinary game shows.
It makes me terribly sad.
+ Most cookery programs are made in the television
studio, but mine are on the street, in the desert
and in the mountains. It's like that because we
want to show viewers the country, so for example
I'll end up having to take a donkey, that is winding
through mountain passes
+ We went to buy fried fish here (in India) and
we simply went to the stall which had the longest
queue; that's how I can tell. You let the locals
vote for the food.
+ Cooking is an art and patience a virtue.. Careful
shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach
are nearly all you need. There is one more thing..
love. Love for food and love for those you invite
to your table. With a combination of these things
you can be an artist
+ I apparently said that celebrity cooks are so
up their own bottoms that they do not realize
that food should be fun, not a station waiting
for a train to arrive to take them to a destination
to learn how to cook.
