Chef Allen Consulting

"It is my belief that cooking is a craft. It starts with an understanding of where foods are grown."
"Good cooking doesn't mean complicated recipes or expensive ingredients. The simpler the food the better....There is only one cuisine for me. The good one!"
"The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you got to have a what-the-hell attitude."
"laying on his back, Remy tastes the electrocuted mushroom] Whoa, you gotta taste this! This is... oh, it's got this kind of... mmm, it's burny, melty... it's not really a smoky taste. It's more like a certain... Pshew! It's got like this "Ba-boom! Zap!" kind of taste. Don't you think? What would you call that flavor?"
"You are COOKING? How DARE you cook in MY kitchen! Where do you get the gall to even attempt something so monumentally idiotic? I should have you drawn and quartered! I'll do it! I think the law is on my side! Larousse, draw and quarter this man - after you put him in the duck press to squeeze the fat out of his head!"
"My Fooding (food with feeling) is an obsession - a way of life... I have a visible passion for food that inspires every aspect of my consulting."
"A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety"
- a French proverb
"I know what I eat I know not what I do"
- je mange GALA
"People got a lot of food on their table...got a lot of forks and knives...man, they gotta cut something!"
"Life is about good food...Collect some fruits and vegetables; bring by some good healthy food,"..."We can provide this kind of healthy food for communities across the country, and we can do it by each of us lending a hand."
