Quote of The Day (and brief history lesson)

Most of you may not know that one of the first food critics and publisher of a best selling guide in 1935, Called Adventures in Good Eating was Duncan Hines. (yes that Duncan Hines- he ultimately sold the rights to use his name which ended up on Proctor & Gamble cake mixes).  Anyway I came across a fantastic, in a bit non-PC, quote attributed to him:

“If the soup was as warm as the wine, if the wine was as old as the turkey, if the turkey had breasts like the maid, it would have been a fine dinner.” – Duncan Hines

I wish I could write something half as good as that some day.
