There's been a quote that I've liked ever since I saw it in someone's sigline on eGullet, but I never knew where it came from. Recently, Barbara of the blog Tigers & Strawberries quoted it in a post, including the source. Yay!

– Alice May Brock, in the Alice's Restaurant Cookbook
And yes, she's that Alice.
