Bon mots

"This special feeling towards fruit, its glory and abundance, is I would say universal.... We respond to strawberry fields or cherry orchards with a delight that a cabbage patch or even an elegant vegetable garden cannot provoke."

-- Jane Grigson (English food writer. 13 March 1928 - 12 March 1990)
