It’s important for me who is at the table with me; the moment when everyone speaks to each other and everyone listens. If there’s good food, it’s much better.
Anyone who’s a chef, who loves food, ultimately knows that all that matters is: ‘Is it good? Does it give pleasure?’
If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… the people who give you their food give you their heart.
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport.
