"That's what I call 'the new Southern cooking movement' - when you take the fresh ingredients around you and use them in a classic way, or you use new vegetables in classic ways." [9:40] -- Nathalie Dupree on A Taste of the Past
"If you eat real food in modest portions, you're going to be so satisfied. It's when we restrict ourselves, go on crazy diets- that's when we get unsatisfied; you can't really satisfy that hunger." [15:00]
