In honor of Easter - food...

Toni Bourdain in his “Les Halles Cookbook” expresses the following:

"Good cooks do not exist in a vacuum…Think of food like drugs. If you were a druggie, and you moved to a new and unfamiliar town, chances are you wouldn’t know where to score your drug of choice. First thing you’d do is to seek out other drug users. You’d pick out an obvious spot, like the parking lot of a methadone clinic, a bad part of town, a pawnshop, a Phish concert, and you’d make “friends” with fellow travelers of similar interests. Soon, no doubt after a few bad experiences, some trial and error, you would find what you need. Same thing with food. Kind of.”
