    CAN BE FORGETTABLE BUT MEMORABLE
  12. WHAT DRIVES US TO UPDATE?

  13. “Find something that you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested

    in it.” PASSION FEEDS ENGAGEMENT
  14. “If you have that passion, it is conveyed through marketing.

    People see it. I get up before them and show them something new and wonderful. When I create something, I believe in it, and I am very passionate about it.” DON’T OVERSELL PASSION
  15. “n spite of food fads, fitness programs, and health concerns,

    we must never lose sight of a beautifully- conceived meal.” KEEP YOUR KITCHEN UP TO DATE
  16. “You’d probably expect to spend…” CHEAP HARDWARE BREAKS

  17. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

  18. EVEN THE SAME OLD THING NEEDS LOVE

  19. “The only real stumbling block in the kitchen is fear

    of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” NEW FEATURES ARE ATTRACTIVE
  20. “You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.”

    NEVER COOK A STEAK THE SAME WAY TWICE
  21. BUT THIS IS ALL WORK

  22. Set it and walk away! ROTISSERIE CHICKEN IS OKAY

  23. Non-cooks think it’s silly to invest two hours’ work in

    two minutes’ enjoyment; but if cooking is evanescent, so is the ballet. HOME COOKED CHICKEN IS GREAT
  24. Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you

    drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know? HARD WORK MATTERS
