Cooking Quotes

Throwing a few bland ingredients into a pan and producing something tasty is nothing short of magic for those who are passionate about cooking. Many choose to call cooking a form of art, rather than a monotonous exercise of merely preparing a meal to satisfy the hunger. Perhaps, one of the good ways to define it would be a creative journey where all your skills rests on how you conjure up an appetizing array of dishes working with all the available ingredients that you have. Not just the taste, but even the color and aroma of the dishes being prepared, make them mouthwatering. These factors also prove the ability of the cook.  Although, the six common cooking methods are roasting, boiling, broiling, frying, stewing and baking, cooks around the globe use several other ways to enhance the taste as well.

The style of cooking varies across geographies and speaks volumes about the culture of a region. A few cuisines which are popular all over the world are Chinese, Mediterranean, Lebanese, Italian and continental.

Home cooked food is widely considered healthier and authentic in taste and nutritional value, since no artificial flavors are added to enhance the taste, unlike food joints. Read the cooking quotes given below to understand how pleasurable an experience cooking can be.

Eudora Welty

When I was a child and the snow fell, my mother always rushed to the kitchen and made snow ice cream and divinity fudge-egg whites, sugar and pecans, mostly. It was a lark then and I always associate divinity fudge with snowstorms.

Phyllis Diller

My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor.

Gigi Hadid

Dolly Parton

When I'm home, I spend Sunday with my husband. If we're not cooking, we travel around in our camper, stop at fast-food restaurants, and picnic. We love that stuff that will harden your arteries in a hurry.

Friedrich Nietzsche

In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad.
