"A sack," Baudolino explained, like a man who knows a trade well, "is like a grape harvest: you have to divide the tasks. There are those who press the grapes, those who carry off the must in the tuns, those who Cook for others, others who go to fetch the good wine from last year.... a sack is a serious job,"Umberto Eco
Music with dinner is an insult both to the Cook and the violinist.

If a man marries his housekeeper or his Cook, the national dividend is diminished.Arthur Cecil Pigou
A good Cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.Wolfgang Rudolph Schmitt
The Cook was a good Cook, as cooks go; and as good cooks go, she went.
Whoever tells a lie is not pure of heart, and such a person can not Cook a clean soup."Ludwig van Beethoven
"Man axalotl here below but I ask very little. Some fragments of Pamphylides, a Choctaw blood-mask, the prose of Scaliger the Elder, a painting by Fuseli, an occasional visit to the all-in wrestling, or to my meretrix; a Cook who can produce a passable 'poulet à la Khmer,' a Pong vase. Simple tastes, you will agree, and it is my simple habit to indulge them!"cyril connolly
Whenever you wash dishes, Cook, or clean, if you make no sound, this is smartness itself. A person who enters a house and makes a lot of noise is revealing a lack of spirituality; even cats and dogs do not make unnecessary sounds, and man as he naturally is does not make any either.michio kushi
I love to Cook. I spend weekends reading cookbooks-it’s really my relaxation.ali larter
I think sometimes that people assume because I'm on television I'm an expert, but I think the whole point of what I do is that I'm not and I don't have any training. My approach isn't about a fancy ingredient or style. I Cook what I love to eat.nigella lawson
"What, no more? Tell the Cook we require ten more courses."ma fuxiang
It’s easier to write about Socrates than about a young woman or a Cook.Anton Chekhov
Here is a Civil War movie that Trent Lott might enjoy. Less enlightened than Gone with the Wind , obsessed with military strategy, impartial between South and North, religiously devout, it waits 70 minutes before introducing the first of its two speaking roles for African Americans; "Stonewall" Jackson assures his black Cook that the South will free him, and the Cook looks cautiously optimistic. If World War II were handled this way, there'd be hell to pay.roger ebert
The economy of a novelist is a little like that of a careful housewife who is unwilling to throw away anything that might perhaps serve its turn. Perhaps the comparison is closer to the Chinese Cook who leaves hardly any part of a duck unserved.graham greene
There have been many definitions of hell, but for the English the best definition is that it is the place where the Germans are the police, the Swedish are the comedians, the Italians are the defense force, Frenchmen dig the roads, the Belgians are the pop singers, the Spanish run the railways, the Turks Cook the food, the Irish are the waiters, the Greeks run the government, and the common language is Dutch.
His thirst he slakes at some pure neighboring brook, Nor seeks for sauce where Appetite stands Cook.Charles Churchill
I seem to you cruel and too much addicted to gluttony, when I beat my Cook for sending up a bad dinner. If that appears to you too trifling a cause, say for what cause you would have a Cook flogged.
A Cook should double one sense have: for he Should taster for himself and master be.

I charge thee, invite them all: let in the tide Of knaves once more; my Cook and I'll provide.william shakespeare
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, Cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
