The Quotable John Gorham

"I think food has a soul of its own. You have to put your own soul into it. If there's science involved in a recipe, I'll definitely follow the science, but I'll play around with techniques and ingredients to make it my own. I'm looking more for inspiration than exact measurements. Any cookbook that makes me think, I want to go cook that right away — those are the best cookbooks." — chef John Gorham, whose first cookbook Toro Bravo: Stories. Recipes. No Bull. is now available, on his favorite kinds of cookbooks. [McSweeney's]
