“In this age where we’re all attached to these digital devices and much of our lives are lived in our heads, people are craving grounding and you can get that through cooking. Cooking brings us back to the earth and puts us in the present moment.”
“Reading is not something we should do. It’s something that can come out of desire and joy.”
–Cara Cannella, editor of Biographile.com on Taste Matters
