Avocados have a creamy texture, making them a healthier replacement for ingredients like butter and mayo in recipes, though they do contain a surprisingly large amount of fat – a whopping 30 grams per medium-sized avocado.
Marcus Samuelsson
Culture and tradition have to change little by little. So ‘new’ means a little twist, a marriage of Japanese technique with French ingredients. My technique. Indian food, Korean food; I put Italian mozzarella cheese with sashimi. I don’t think ‘new new new.’ I’m not a genius. A little twist.
Masaharu Morimoto

April Bloomfield

Tom Waits
My family and I cook at home almost every day together. The kitchen is the central and most important room in the house; it’s a great way for us to connect. We love going to the farmer’s market on Sundays as a family and choosing the ingredients together.
Jose Andres

John Whaite
I like to talk about food, ingredients, and how to adapt recipes. It’s a dialogue.

Nathan Myhrvold
Read labels in your favorite products. Look for short lists of simple, less-processed ingredients with names you recognize as food. If you find some of the same ingredients in your cereal as your shampoo, maybe it’s time to switch to something simpler.
Tara Stiles
You are defined by your ingredients, by the way you touch them, by the flavors you draw from them.

It’s a challenge to demonstrate that you can prepare some really interesting food with humble ingredients.

I make really good chicken soup, sort of from scratch. I don’t make my own stock. I just use a base like a chicken stock, but everything else, all the ingredients, I do on my own.

Aparna Sen
It is important to be transparent about ingredients and use products with clean ingredients.
Dan Bilzerian

Bobby Flay

Ferran Adria
My go-to ingredients that are also pantry-friendly start with freeze-dried berries. They’re so potent with both flavor and color and can grind up into a fine powder and give you a smooth frosting or cake.

The funny thing is while the grown-ups in the family may indulge, we really try to offer our son Duke clean food, as all his meals are made with organic ingredients as the rest of us eat cookies straight out of the freezer.
Bill Rancic
A sponge is quite simple. You weigh ingredients, mix, and put it in the oven. With pastry, you manhandle it, shape it, fold it. You have to be involved with it; there is more jeopardy, more risk. But it’s like making a casserole. There’s a flurry of activity to begin with; then it’s about leaving it to rest.
Paul Hollywood
Right now, I am doing the reverse of molecular gastronomy. I’m working with scientists to find ingredients and produce that are proven to be good for you.
Joel Robuchon

Harley Pasternak
I wrote ghost stories because I’d always enjoyed reading them, and they seemed to be fizzling out… I don’t take them terribly seriously. It’s like a cake, with ingredients.

Samin Nosrat

Jason Isbell
In the cultural Thermomix that is Australia, it’s natural that we pick up a taste for flavours, techniques and ingredients that are integral to a place or a people not from our own background.
Melissa Leong
I think it’s one of the main negative emotional ingredients that fuels show business, because there’s so much at stake and the fear of failure looms large.

The new ‘Joy’ was needed for a number of reasons. Recent developments in nutrition and new ingredients were two of the major reasons for the revision. One of the other big reasons was America’s new love for big flavors. Yay!
Irma S. Rombauer
I am not a shock jock pastry chef. I don’t create desserts using strange ingredients just for the sake of doing so, like so many of my colleagues in the industry.
Johnny Iuzzini
Organizing ahead of time makes the work more enjoyable. Chefs cut up the onions and have the ingredients lined up ahead of time and have them ready to go. When everything is organized you can clean as you go and it makes everything so much easier and fun.
Anne Burrell
Honestly, I’ll take a little lard over the 20 chemicals and ingredients I can’t pronounce in some store-bought tortillas.

Kevon Looney
One of the ingredients that made Cheers work so well was the great ensemble of actors we had. That’s the case with any good series.
Ted Danson
Cooking is about presenting flavors and other aspects of food in a way that makes best use of them and makes an engaging, satisfying meal. Taste necessarily comes into it along with technique. Some ingredients require cooking, cleaning or otherwise denaturing them, some are fine as they are.
Steve Albini
I’m not a baker, but my patisserie is my baby. I love the idea of good-quality cakes made with top ingredients.
Rick Stein
I think that’s all you do as an actor. You give ingredients for the edit, and the edit’s the stew, and they try to make a meal out of it. That’s all you are. You just throw things in. This is an idea, this is an idea.
Daniel Kaluuya
So, when I was about eight, I told my mother that I wanted to be a chef – and a police man, too. I didn’t totally know that was it at the time, but I was very attracted to it from the beginning. I liked the idea of working with people in a kitchen, of dealing with ingredients, all of it.
Dominique Crenn
When we presume that we are better than people who need structure and guidance, we lack one of the most crucial ingredients for change: humility.
Marshall Goldsmith
Middle Eastern cuisine has the same depth of ingredients and processes as other cuisines. They just haven’t had as much exposure.

When I see the first dailies on any movie, I usually feel that I had no idea how this combination of ingredients was going to mix together, what it was going to produce.
Wes Anderson
In 49 countries around the world, including all of Europe, people have the opportunity of knowing whether or not they are eating food which contains genetically engineered ingredients. In the United States, we don’t.
Bernie Sanders
For a few months, I’d have a green juice every day, but one day, I realized I’d rather eat those ingredients than drink them.
Ellie Kemper
Musical harmony is based on physical principles, while in cooking, ingredients must be weighed out with precision. At the same time, you have to be able to invent because if one follows the same recipe all the time, you never create anything new.
Fabiola Gianotti
I use nothing but the best ingredients. My cookies are always baked fresh. I price cookies so that you cannot make them at home for any less. And I still give cookies away.
Debbi Fields
What I hear a lot is that fresh, healthy eating isn’t accessible. That it’s full of bizarre ingredients people have never heard of that are really expensive. There’s also a perception that it’s time consuming and not very filling.
Ella Woodward
As an artist, one of the ingredients to doing good work is self-awareness, and that’s something I cultivate.
Rodney Crowell
My curiosity and love for food started at an early age. My mother was a working mom, so I learned to whip up sweet and savory food using everyday pantry and grocery store ingredients that required little supervision.
Christina Tosi
Open your refrigerator, your freezer, your kitchen cupboards, and look at the labels on your food. You’ll find ‘natural flavor’ or ‘artificial flavor’ in just about every list of ingredients. The similarities between these two broad categories are far more significant than the differences.
David Chang
Martinis are glamorous but also so simple because they only have a few ingredients, and you can really taste the vodka.
Stephanie Sigman
You know, making a movie is a collaborative effort and sometimes all the ingredients don’t work out. I know that every now and again I am going to make a movie that won’t work.
Eddie Murphy
I have experienced some amazing food! Yet when I think about the most luxurious and exquisite meals I have had, visions of simple food made from a few natural ingredients are what most excite me.
Mark Hyman
In a lot of ways, a lot of smells that aren’t necessarily edible smell good, and they remind you of certain aspects of food. So making those associations with what smells good or smells a certain way and pairing that with actual edible ingredients is one avenue that we take creatively.
Grant Achatz
On ‘Chopped,’ the time goes down a bit and there are several ingredients, usually one that makes no sense whatsoever with the rest of the ingredients. So it gets you out of your culinary comfort zone a little bit. Like we had octopus and cheese paired up with each other.
Michael Symon
Focus on the flavor and texture of your desserts. Don’t go overboard with too many ingredients and flavors keep a good balance of flavors.
Adriano Zumbo
There is so much to be gained from investing more time in what we eat. Buying fresh ingredients means knowing where your food comes from and what’s in it.
Carl Honore
If you eat good ingredients, and moderately, it should not be a problem. If you look at the bakers over the years, how many obese bakers have there been? There have been a few – nobody’s saying you can’t join ‘Bake Off’ if you’re obese – but by and large bakers, just like cooks, are not particularly overweight.
Prue Leith
My job the same as carpenter. What kind of house you want to build? What kind of food you want to make? You think your ingredients, your structure. Simple.
Masa Takayama
The chief ingredients in the composition of those qualities that gain esteem and praise, are good nature, truth, good sense, and good breeding.
Joseph Addison
For all that we can see from the road in China, there is a lot that we cannot see. We miss what’s behind the trees, the cover-ups, the darker side of things – the ingredients that so often drive a reporting trip.
Evan Osnos
When I look at myself, I see a person who strangely lacks what I consider the ingredients of a personality.
Peter Sellers
I love giving little ones fun tasks that make them feel like they’re part of the team but keep them safe. My go-tos are topping pizzas, decorating cookies, stirring ingredients, and, of course, taste-testing!
Katie Lee
We incorporate a lot of natural ingredients into our Glossier products, like sweet almond oil, which is great at getting moisture deep into the skin.
Emily Weiss
As far as Italian ingredients, I always have one of those plants of fresh basil in the house, and some mozzarella in the fridge.
Gino D’Acampo
Don’t be afraid to adapt new ingredients into your own techniques, and traditional ingredients into new recipes.
Jose Garces
I want to change things with everything I do, not for the sake of changing things, but for the sake of taking greater and greater risks, or how minimalist I might be able to be, or how I can involve elements or ingredients in music videos that are not musical, for instance.
Jonathan Glazer
An Emraan Hashmi film has come to guarantee certain ingredients: An intense, grey central character, a beautiful girl – if he gets lucky, then two – couple of kisses, a few bold scenes, fabulous music and a climatic twist.
Emraan Hashmi
You talk about Shaq, I would put Tim Duncan in that same category. Mr. Fundamental, just kept things simple. He is a great teammate, a great player, and a great person. When you have those ingredients in a champion, you just want to be a part of that and have an opportunity to play with him.
Jason Kidd
Hearty soups with relatively long cook times like minestrone, for example, are chock-full of aromatics and flavor-lending ingredients like bacon, onions, and garlic. These infuse the water with their flavor and produce a clean-tasting broth all on their own.
Claire Saffitz
I think a lot of the big companies need to be more conscious about the way they make their products. Fewer ingredients that are labelled really clearly, so you know exactly what’s going on inside the pot.
Tom Fletcher
We want to make the old fast food model irrelevant. We want to make great ingredients and classic cooking techniques accessible to everybody.
Steve Ells
There are only three questions that matter in the kitchen if you’re cooking and not baking. The first is how good are your ingredients; the second is how much salt to add; and the third is how long to cook whatever it is you’re cooking – the question of doneness.
Tom Junod
For women, the important ingredients for happiness are to forge an identity, serve the Lord, get an education, develop your talents, serve your family, and, if possible, to have a family of your own.
James E. Faust
I’m a culture guy. I sort of know all the familiar ingredients to get something going. Once everyone starts to buy in collectively, then that culture can start being built.
Iman Shumpert
I’m not above jarred baby food, if it’s good ingredients, for convenience sake.
Molly Yeh
I like to adapt some of the traditional dishes from my childhood from both NZ and Samoa using British ingredients and European cooking methods.
Monica Galetti
My aim is to get people excited about eating more veggies and seeing them as delicious ingredients rather than a chore.
Ella Woodward
After ‘Bake Off,’ I got these book deals that were very much baking books. But the books I’m producing now like ‘Perfect Plates in Five Ingredients’ and ‘Comfort,’ they’re really a truer representation of who I am as a food writer and a food industry professional.
John Whaite
Los Angeles has all the ingredients of success… but we need to start with our education system.
Eric Garcetti
I just love food and the art of it. There’s such an art to being a good chef and the way you present food and the different ingredients you use. It’s like music – you get inspiration from different genres. It’s the same with art, too.
Vegetarian and frugal it may be, but the chickpea is one of the most versatile ingredients you could keep in your cupboards.
Yotam Ottolenghi
A delicious smoothie is a really easy way of taking on lots of amazing skin boosting ingredients and was my first port of call every morning in the run-up to my wedding – I’ll throw in frozen berries, banana, spinach, almond butter, almond milk, and oats for a quick breakfast quite often.
Ella Woodward
I like to take a day off and enjoy fast food for what it is. I have to say that in New York, I’m really partial about taco trucks. I mean, I really can’t handle it. There is something about catching all those ingredients piled on top of each other: it puts me in a tizzy. I love it. I’m kind of a taco truck junkie.
Alex Guarnaschelli
Casseroles don’t have to be about canned ingredients and vegetables you normally wouldn’t even think of eating alone, much less stuck in between layers of sauce and breadcrumbs. They can vary from everyone’s favorite all-time casserole, macaroni and cheese, to the ultimate English casserole, Shepherd’s Pie.
Marcus Samuelsson
You cannot take shortcuts. We’ve shown that we can spend more on ingredients, not less, and charge a fair price.
Steve Ells
I think cooking has the same creative process as designing, where you have the ingredients, you have the alchemy part of it, and you have the satisfaction of seeing your creation become a reality.
Cynthia Rowley
The universe is large and old, and the ingredients for life as we know it are everywhere, so there’s no reason to think that Earth would be unique in that regard. Whether of not the life became intelligent is a different question, and we’ll see if we find that.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Everyone’s favorite breakfast dish can be prepared in a moment’s time with just a few ingredients and minimum effort.
Marcus Samuelsson
We have friends in Italy who have these old stoves, and they turn out the most beautiful food. All you really need is time, the best ingredients, and love.
Debi Mazar
Since we married, Peta’s taken over a lot of my cooking and she’s incredible. She’ll do different meals for me and the kids, depending on my regime. If I name 10 ingredients she’ll change the recipe every day.
Mark Cavendish
If you want to know if your food contains gluten, aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, trans-fats or MSG, you simply read the ingredients listed on the label.
Bernie Sanders
There’s not much cooking in our household. We do a lot of raw food, so it’s more about putting the right ingredients together to create something scrumptious.
Jason Mraz
I think over-seasoning it is something I tend to do. If it’s a good steak, salt, pepper, and butter are the three key ingredients. But just try not to overcook it, and you’ll be happy.
Ree Drummond
I’ve been making sushi for 38 years, and I’m still learning. You have to consider the size and color of the ingredients, how much salt and vinegar to use and how the seasons affect the fattiness of the fish.
Masaharu Morimoto
We are taking steps to fight the production of meth on our own soil through limiting access to precursor ingredients, supporting educational efforts and providing necessary resources to law enforcement.
Greg Walden
The traditional fast food model is built on buying the cheapest ingredients – and that usually means poor-quality, heavily processed foods. But you can use quality ingredients, cook food using classic cooking techniques, and still serve something that’s fast and inexpensive.
Steve Ells
I can tell you one of the most surprising ingredients I’ve ever found. Perhaps five years ago on a beach I saw this herb that looked exactly like chives. I put it in my mouth and started chewing and, surprise, it tasted exactly like coriander.
Rene Redzepi
I’m surprised by the talent I find all over. There are always new chefs who propose many interesting new ideas, new ways of looking at ingredients.
Alain Ducasse
Don’t put too many chefs to work. Sometimes they get too involved in the ingredients and are of no help.
Jose Andres
If you don’t use good ingredients, the outcome is never going to be excellent. But if you buy the freshest ingredients that are in season, at their peak, and you cook with them, you can’t really go wrong.
Gail Simmons
We’re not just any star stuff, most of which is humdrum hydrogen and listless helium. Our bodies include fancier ingredients like carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorous, and a few other herbs and spices.
Seth Shostak
Perhaps 10 percent of patients who are prescribed antidepressants are really benefiting from the drugs’ active ingredients.
Irving Kirsch
Creating characters is like throwing together ingredients for a recipe. I take characteristics I like and dislike in real people I know, or know of, and use them to embellish and define characters.
Cassandra Clare
I have a certain point of view, a certain way to plate food, certain ingredients that I like to use.
Charlie Trotter
For me the best food in the world is New British. It’s quite classical cooking with really simple but good-quality ingredients. I also like top-end restaurants and pub grub done well.
Prue Leith
But everything written has style. The list of ingredients on the side of a cornflakes box has style. And everything literary has literary style. And style is integral to a work. How something is told correlates with – more – makes what’s being told. A story is its style.
Ali Smith
Simple ingredients prepared in a simple way – that’s the best way to take your everyday cooking to a higher level.
Jose Andres
I have to make sure I exercise and that the ingredients that go into my body are completely organic.
Janice Dickinson
I love it when a few simple ingredients come together on a plate, and I think, ‘Wow, that’s a dish.’
Alex Guarnaschelli
We love, you know, children love the ingredients of poetry. And then they go into this tunnel that we call adolescence, and when they come out of it, they hate poetry.
Billy Collins
Whenever possible, I use local, fresh ingredients, just because it tastes and feels better to eat an egg or a tomato or a hamburger that wasn’t flown halfway around the world, that didn’t travel on a truck and get stuck in traffic jams, that hasn’t been sitting in a supermarket’s refrigerator case for days.
Kate Christensen
Cooking involves a deadline and hungry people and ingredients that expire in a week. It’s stressful. Cooking happens on the stove and on the clock. Baking happens with ingredients that last for months and come to life inside a warm oven. Baking is slow and leisurely.
Regina Brett
The ingredients for great advertising haven’t changed since the ‘Mad Men’ era: Brands win if their advertising is relevant and people like it.
David Droga
What is tricky for those hoping to utilize such weapons is that TATP bombs are quite difficult to make because their ingredients, when combined, are highly unstable and can explode easily if mishandled.
Peter Bergen
Our belief is that aspirations, meritocracy, and a world class institution are the three ingredients our country needs.
Shiv Nadar
After a day of writing, I love nothing more than to go into my kitchen and start chopping onions and garlic on the way to cooking an improvised meal with whatever ingredients are on hand. Cooking is the perfect counterpoint to writing. I find it more relaxing than anything else, even naps, walks, or hot baths.
Kate Christensen
I try to eat ‘real’ food as much as I can; often I’ll shove a load of ingredients – spinach, an apple or whatever’s knocking about – in my NutriBullet. Nothing beats a bit of buttery toast though! I think a little bit of what you fancy does you good.
Sara Cox
There is so much more than ingredients that go into home cooking. A home-cooked meal includes so much love and recipes that have been passed down through generations, and that is what I truly appreciate.
Maneet Chauhan
I’m the test kitchen manager, which means I’m in charge of sourcing all of our ingredients and kitchen equipment. I also manage the budget, help out on photo shoots, and generally coordinate all the moving parts to keep our kitchen functional.
Brad Leone
I always hated watching cooking shows where the chef would use ingredients that I couldn’t get my hands on, cooking implements that I couldn’t afford, recipes that I could never have access to.
Adam Richman
Baking is very meditative. It’s precise – you have to weigh out the ingredients, follow it step by step and focus on everything, so it’s just right. It also brings you out of your shell, because if you’ve made a batch of brownies, you share them and its really sociable like that.
John Whaite
I want to feed my kid something that is real and not processed. It’s hard to do. People are working and busy. The question is: Is it worth it? Is it worth stopping at the farm stand or supermarket to buy fresh ingredients?
Tom Colicchio
I thought, ‘This is not going to drag me down, this is going to make me a better man.’ So I came out of prison a man with a plan, determined to set up a business importing Italian ingredients.
Gino D’Acampo
Most of the commissions that I get are either corporate jobs or celebrity jobs. Like, Wishbone had me make a whole fashion show – the clothes were all made out of real salad ingredients.
Chris March
The thing with children is they’re a bit like baking a fruitcake: you throw all the ingredients in but you never know how they’re going to turn out.
Len Goodman
I always feel like it’s two key ingredients when it comes to following your dreams, making something happen that the average person deems difficult. If you truly believe it, that’s step one. Step two, is, you know, the hard work that goes along with it.
J. Cole
Baking can be done with a few simple ingredients, so it’s about simplicity and nostalgia – people are reminded of their childhood.
Paul Hollywood
Without a doubt, one of my favorite American ingredients is blue crabs, a true delicacy! And a great value, I think.
Jose Andres
I am, by default, a healthy eater. I limit processed food, eat fresh ingredients, all of that.
Stephanie Land
A lot of old Australian bakeries used a lot of trans-fats but I just wanted to use quality ingredients – butter, cream, custard – to produce a high-quality product.
Adriano Zumbo
I wanted to do a project that was seamless and had all the ingredients from start to finish, from conception to mixing and mastering.
Philip Bailey
Only advanced bakers should endeavor to adapt non-vegan recipes to be vegan, or gluten-full recipes to be gluten-free. There are all sorts of tips and tricks when it comes to subbing vegan ingredients for eggs and dairy, but it’s tricky to say the least.
Claire Saffitz
Pictures, abstract symbols, materials, and colors are among the ingredients with which a designer or engineer works. To design is to discover relationships and to make arrangements and rearrangements among these ingredients.
Paul Rand
The ingredients of health and long life, are great temperance, open air, easy labor, and little care.
Philip Sidney
The way you support farmers is by shopping and buying raw ingredients.
Michael Pollan
Many Euro-Asian homes have a cupboard devoted to Chinese ingredients. The smell cannot be contained and it’s my earliest memory. I both object to and love it.
Gok Wan
Look at what has occurred in history. When the Berlin Wall fell, it was not surprising, but it was unexpected. Who predicted the Arab Spring? Nobody expected it, but all the ingredients were there. I think all the ingredients are also there for Quebec to become a country. But when? That’s another question.
Gilles Duceppe
I have smuggled so many ingredients across so many borders, like shallot confit from Thailand, or a new sauce from New Orleans not approved by the FDA.
Blake Lively
Getting kids into the kitchen preparing the food they and their families will eat results in them viewing food in an entirely new way. If given the right ingredients, that act alone can raise the standards of the quality of the food both they and their family eat.
Chuck Norris
When buying beauty products, I always check the ingredients. The product should be sourced from natural ingredients. It should have not been tested on animals, as I am against animal testing, and it should be soft on the skin.
Jacqueline Fernandez
There is a family atmosphere at Inter, and there are all the ingredients to aim high.
Wesley Sneijder
Pastry is different from cooking because you have to consider the chemistry, beauty and flavor. It’s not just sugar and eggs thrown together. I tell my pastry chefs to be in tune for all of this. You have to be challenged by using secret or unusual ingredients.
Ron Ben-Israel
We’re making it more difficult to obtain the necessary ingredients to produce meth and tightening criminal penalties for those who deal in this dangerous drug.
Michael McCaul
The problem with independent films is that they can be hit or miss. I’ve seen scripts that have blown me away. But there have to be all the right ingredients in place to make them work: the director, cast, publicity, distribution.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Two of the central ingredients to our family are food and faith, so sitting down together and thanking God for the food He’s provided means everything to us. Prayer is a natural part of our lives – not only around the dinner table, but all day long.
Phil Robertson
My approach goes way beyond simply ingredients and techniques. Every dish has to have a story.
Alvin Leung
I’d actually say that every musician is a human being, and that not everybody likes being social. But with music, there are all these ingredients to the business that have nothing to do with writing songs or playing an instrument.
Amanda Palmer
When I started to use fewer ingredients in my cooking, I was reminded of the uncomplicated flavours of my childhood.
John Whaite
Pharmaceuticals are regulated. Pesticides are, as well as food, save the occasional salmonella outbreak. But chemicals and their witch’s brew of ingredients continue to augment American industry without anyone quite knowing their makeup and possible toxicity. And that needs to change.
Suzy Shuster
What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients: Choose a career you love, give it the best there is in you, seize your opportunities, and be a member of the team.
Benjamin Franklin Fairless
For me, electronic music is like cooking: it’s a sensual organic activity where you can mix ingredients.
Jean-Michel Jarre
Four years of football are calculated to breed in the average man more of the ingredients of success in life than almost any academic course he takes.
Knute Rockne
We also learn that this country and the Western world have no monopoly of goodness and truth and scholarship, we begin to appreciate the ingredients that are indispensable to making a better world. In a life of learning that is, perhaps, the greatest lesson of all.
John Hope Franklin
If you like to bake with eggs, you can substitute Ener-G egg replacer, bananas, tofu, or many other ingredients. You get the hang of it quickly enough.
Ingrid Newkirk
My cooking style is really simple. Not a lot of ingredients, but all good quality, so you don’t have to do that much to them.
Katie Lee
When you’re holding people’s attention, I feel you must give them high-quality ingredients. They deserve nothing but your best. And if they need information, get it, cross-check it, and try to be right. Do not waste their time; do not enjoy the ego trip of being onstage.
Henry Rollins
Absence is one of the most useful ingredients of family life, and to dose it rightly is an art like any other.
Freya Stark
Food that’s served at the table in a paper parcel always creates a remarkable culinary moment when opened, because the package is full of aromatic steam from the lightly cooked ingredients inside.
Yotam Ottolenghi
At the restaurant, we strive to create an excellent experience for our guests, and in the kitchen, we could not do this without having access to the best ingredients, equipment and tools, including Victorinox Cutlery.
Daniel Humm
I was too thin. I was working all the time, not eating at home. Spaghetti bolognese on planes. Ugh. Now most of my meals I cook for myself with organic ingredients.
Shalom Harlow
Salt’s relationship to flavor is multidimensional: It has its own particular taste, and it both balances and enhances the flavor of other ingredients.
Samin Nosrat
I like Bobby Flay’s attitude and his approach towards food. I think he’s just passionate and very honest. I find him very honest about food and cooking and ingredients and I admire that because I think that it’s easy to get away from that for various reasons.
Alex Guarnaschelli
Chipotle is based on a very simple idea: We start with great ingredients, prepare them using classic cooking techniques, and serve them in a way that allows people to get exactly what they want.
Steve Ells
The most important thing is to snack on things that are filled with real food and nourishing ingredients that will leave you feeling energised and happy.
Ella Woodward
Chefs are artists, and I couldn’t be happy with my art if I was forced to use cheap ingredients.
Nobu Matsuhisa
But since you’re asking me, I’ll tell you my opinion: all cornbread is authentic, as long as it’s good, hot, and made with love and fresh ingredients.
Jeremy Jackson
Creating characters is like throwing together ingredients for a recipe. I take characteristics I like and dislike in real people I know, or know of, and use them to embellish and define characters.
Cassandra Clare
I have a great love for cuisine, so I’m always interested in local food, and there are so many interesting dishes, spices and ingredients in India.
Romain Grosjean
If you would ask me some of the ingredients that people are surprised by that could appear on my menu are such things as bleu cheese, vegetables like parsnips and rutabaga, bacon, pork fat, fois gras, truffles, and olives.
Johnny Iuzzini
I eat vegetarian a lot. I buy only fresh ingredients and cook from scratch – that way, when I feel like snacking and look in my fridge, it’s: ‘Oh, baby carrots or chocolate soy pudding. Take your pick.’
Nadia Giosia
Indian cinema needs all ingredients like emotion, action, sentiment and humour; it’s not easy. It’s easy to make a Hollywood film, as it goes with a pattern. Our cinema needs a lot of commercial ingredients. That’s why I don’t do many films.
Pawan Kalyan
I learned so much from ‘Iron Chef’ about ingredients, about the courage to put yourself out there.
Alex Guarnaschelli
A lot of people love the idea of improvising but are terrified of it, so I tried to make a book that was not a chef’s book about improvising but a real home cook’s book with a real home cook’s pantry, supermarket ingredients, that sort of thing.
Sally Schneider
A well-made salad must have a certain uniformity; it should make perfect sense for those ingredients to share a bowl.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Dad likes my food, but he probably thinks it’s too busy. He is a wonderful cook but only uses three ingredients. My mum rips out my articles and makes my recipes.
Yotam Ottolenghi
When you think about French pastry, one of the most classic traditional pastries is the eclair. An eclair is like a blank canvas that can be easily adapted to any environment. Ingredients are the most important aspect of a perfect eclair, and they need to be used at their peak.
Johnny Iuzzini
The most overrated ingredients are garlic and extra-virgin olive oil. With garlic, it’s personal; I have never been that big of a fan of its flavor. As for extra-virgin olive oil, I do use it quite often but its ubiquity serves to overshadow many wonderful oils like pistachio, walnut, argan and even grapeseed.
Lela Rose
Music is like cooking for me: you mix the ingredients together in one big pan and see how they end up. Through experimenting, you find what you really like and stick with it.
Jacob Collier
When you cook, you take a life. When you eat fish, or meat, you take a life. And you must be very respectful of the ingredients and that is very important.
Joel Robuchon
I like to cook with the philosophy of using great ingredients and not altering them too much.
Aaron Sanchez
You don’t have to be a chef or even a particularly good cook to experience proper kitchen alchemy: the moment when ingredients combine to form something more delectable than the sum of their parts. Fancy ingredients or recipes not required; simple, made-up things are usually even better.
Erin Morgenstern
New York’s food scene is truly unique because it is this wonderful melting pot where immigrants from all over the world have brought with them their cuisines and their ingredients.
Daniel Humm
I thought cars were essential ingredients of life itself.
Edward Herrmann
Coconut is one of those love-hate ingredients.
Marcus Samuelsson
Ultimately, all the fans hope for is that their team wins and that the players give their all. So if you work hard, leave everything out on the pitch and achieve good results, then these are all of the necessary ingredients to make sure you are liked.
To eat well, you either have to invest money or time. If you can put in some time, the raw ingredients are not that expensive. You can eat extremely well on a budget.
Michael Pollan
Musical harmony is based on physical principles, while in cooking, ingredients must be weighed out with precision. At the same time, you have to be able to invent because if one follows the same recipe all the time, you never create anything new.
Fabiola Gianotti
When I first came here, Italian food wasn’t anything I recognized. I didn’t know what Italian American food was; we never ate it at home. It was the food of immigrants who came here and made use of the ingredients they had.
Lidia Bastianich
Open your refrigerator, your freezer, your kitchen cupboards, and look at the labels on your food. You’ll find ‘natural flavor’ or ‘artificial flavor’ in just about every list of ingredients. The similarities between these two broad categories are far more significant than the differences.
David Chang
We all strive for balance, often moving to extremes to find ourselves somewhere in the middle where we can sustainably exist in optimal inspiration. Working toward balance takes a lot of ingredients. We need courage, reflection, attention, action, and a push-and-pull relationship between effort and relaxation.
Tara Stiles
So many of the recipes that I come up with have a story. I’m a blogger. It flowed very naturally out of me, but I also knew this was a way to set my recipes apart. A, they are always using interesting ingredients but B, there is always a story behind it.
Aarti Sequeira
But most Canadians have recognized to a greater or lesser extent that despite much of the so-called progress of the affluent society, essential ingredients to a meaningful life seem to be either entirely lacking, or at best, difficult to grasp.
Alex Campbell
My cooking is simply ingredients plus umami.
Nobu Matsuhisa
You don’t have to be a chef or even a particularly good cook to experience proper kitchen alchemy: the moment when ingredients combine to form something more delectable than the sum of their parts.
Erin Morgenstern
The simpler the food, the harder it is to prepare it well. You want to truly taste what it is you’re eating. So that goes back to the trend of fine ingredients. It’s very Japanese: Preparing good ingredients very simply, without distractions from the flavor of the ingredient itself.
Joel Robuchon
As a chef, you need to respect your guests and their needs. If they decide that they want to eat certain things and not eat others, if for religious reasons or just decide they don’t want to eat certain ingredients, you have to respect that.
Joel Robuchon
I believe that anyone can cook a great meal. Basically all you need to do is get your hands on some fresh ingredients and not be afraid to make a mess in the kitchen.
Nadia Giosia
I really don’t know what makes a comedian. I think it’s a family background and environment. Yet if you put the same ingredients in another person, he may never utter a funny line.
Bob Newhart
I try to think of food like fuel. I don’t look at calories; I just look at ingredients. If my body were an engine, what would make it run? What would make it perform at its highest level?
Nikki Reed
At the end of the 1990s, we decided we should invest our best efforts to work in a sustainable way with the ingredients that the Amazon produces.
Guilherme Leal
French cooking is really the result of peasants figuring out how to extract flavor from pedestrian ingredients. So most of the food that we think of as elite didn’t start out that way.
Michael Pollan
I think sports makes for good drama because it has all the same ingredients as anything worth reading or listening to or watching. Conflict, desire, heartbreak – it’s all there.
Jay Baruchel
Everywhere I go, I always look for creative entrepreneurs, whether it’s artisans and craftsmen, small farmers and gardeners, or restaurateurs who use fresh, locally sourced ingredients. I admire the courage and self-reliance it takes to start your own business and make it succeed.
Martha Stewart
Since truffle oil and caviar aren’t always in the budget, learning to tweak and enhance just a few ingredients and flavor combinations can help you transform those ordinary ingredients into the extraordinary!
Marcus Samuelsson
My dream as a passionate cook has been to go to Le Cordon Bleu. Never could my most incredible dream have lived up to the experience. The food, the lesson, the chef, the ingredients – all the best of the best. I see why Le Cordon Bleu is world-renowned.
Blake Lively
A bad review is like baking a cake with all the best ingredients and having someone sit on it.
Danielle Steel
If you only use rich and luxurious ingredients, you end up with excess.
Alvin Leung
I tend to tell my readers to go for the cheapest ingredients every time, unless they’re unbearable. If so, you only need to have them once and the next week switch up.
Jack Monroe
I feel like my kind of music is a big pot of different spices. It’s a soup with all kinds of ingredients in it.
Abigail Washburn
The thing with Joy Division’s music is that each member was playing like a separate line. We hardly ever played together; we all played separately. But when you put it together, it was like the ingredients in a cake.
Peter Hook
I make it happen. Who bought Alex Haley’s book ‘Roots’ for TV? Me. I hired the director, hired the writer. I put them all together. I’m like the chef. If I mix all the ingredients right, it’s going to taste terrific. If I don’t, it’s not going to come out good.
David L. Wolper
My 4 key ingredients for success are my coach, my Forza supplements, my daily food deliveries and my gym.
Spencer Matthews
Believability and respect are two of the main ingredients in professional wrestling that are sorely missing today.
Dusty Rhodes
The best – and most popular – recipe I’ve ever written has three ingredients: buttermilk, chicken, and salt.
Samin Nosrat
There are many Summer ingredients I love: one of my favourite times is when the cherries are ready!
Monica Galetti
I won’t put a product out that I don’t 100 percent believe in. All of my products are made from the best ingredients and are made to make a woman feel like herself, only prettier and more confident.
Bobbi Brown
I love clothes and going to supermarkets. I spend hours walking around the aisles looking at ingredients.
Vic Reeves
I certainly could’ve made a lot more money buying cheap ingredients, and people might not have been able to tell the difference. That was never a part of the calculus. It was not part of my DNA.
Steve Ells
There are so many ingredients that are contained in ‘The Wall’ that were not necessarily contained in other Pink Floyd records, particularly following on from ‘Animals,’ which was very spare and sparse. Production on it was much more massive, the complexity of the recording was much more intense.
Nick Mason
I can make a bourbon and Coke, those types of drinks… If the ingredients are named in the drink, I can make it.
Rick Harrison
Just as you would if you wanted to eat healthier or take better care of your skin, the most important thing you can do when buying something is to turn over the bottle and get informed about the ingredients. Many items we use daily are full of unpronounceable chemicals.
Su-chin Pak
