Bon mots

"Eating takes a special talent. Some people are much better at it than others. In that way, it is like sex, and as with sex, it's more fun with someone who really likes it. I can't imagine having a lasting friendship with anyone who is not interested in food."

-- Alan King (American Comic. 26 December 1927 – 9 May 2004)
