And cooking done with care is an act of love.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Show me a man who lives alone and has a 
perpetually clean kitchen, and 8 times out

with detestable spiritual qualities.

the kitchen. It's not anything deliberate

It's arranged along informal lines.

My very first lessons in the art of telling stories 
took place in the kitchen . . . my mother and three
or four of her friends. . . told stories. . . with 
effortless art and technique. They were 
natural-born storytellers in the oral tradition.

out all the pots. Then I have stood on
the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows, 
with a harp and sword in my hands.
