“To make a good salad is to be a brilliant diplomatist -
the problem is entirely the same in both cases.
To know how much oil one must mix with one's vinegar.”

~Oscar Wilde~


"It takes four men to dress a salad:
a wise man for the salt, a madman for the pepper, a miser for the vinegar, and a spendthrift for the oil."


"Beautiful soup! Who cares for fish, game or any other dish?
Who would not give all else for two pennyworth of beautiful soup?"

~Lewis Carroll~
