1. “People who love to eat are always the best people.” – Julia Child (Julia’s classic The Joy of Cooking can be found here)

2. My mom, who’s been in the restaurant business for 40 years, is the number-one influence in my life. But I look up to a lot of people in the industry. Tops on my list is Mario Batali. My mom and Mario taught me the same lesson: Food is love. – Rachael Ray (Rachel’s new cookbook can be found here)
Our thought: There’s nothing quite like big, family style dinners filled with good wine and conversation.
