Where is it written that a smart woman can’t also be stacked?
The best thing you can do for someone is make them a beautiful plate of food. How else can you invade someone’s body without actually touching them?
It doesn’t matter how precisely the onion is cut as long as the person chewing it is happy.
If any chef ever tells you they’re not inspired equally by the truck-stop barbecue as they are by the four-star Michelin restaurant they are lying.
Women’s voices not being heard is the root of many of the problems of the world.
Beauty is no accomplishment on its own. It’s what you do with it.
I’m the kind of girl who thinks about what she’s gonna cook for dinner when she’s finishing her lunch.
I like me better naked. I don’t mean that in a vain way… When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on. Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators. When you don’t have any clothes on, it’s just you, raw, and you can’t hide.
I’m not tough. I’m tenacious.
In a way that somebody else converts to Judaism or becomes a Hare Krishna, I belong to the church of fried chicken.
I have great empathy for all the contestants that come on ‘Top Chef,’ whether they go home right away or they make it to the finish line. It’s a very vulnerable position they put themselves in and I feel for them.
People are thrown off by someone who looks feminine, but is also strong. It’s not that pretty girls aren’t smart, it’s that women aren’t strong.
I’m a sucker for fried chicken – I really love it.
Whether I’m making a recipe or a piece of jewelry or a white-rose-and-jasmine tea or the perfume, I like to think of myself as a happy little sorceress, and if I could just have a little general store with all that stuff and give people a sense of my taste, that would be lovely.
An oil massage, a hot bath, a good night’s sleep, soft smells and music and clothes with soft textures denote sensuality to me.
I’ve always thought the back is one of the most beautiful parts of a woman.
I have a great career, and I have my daughter. Sio what I don’t have is not as important to as what I do have.
I’m still amazed at how much people are willing to humiliate themselves to be on TV.
People always comment about my clothes. They don’t think a fashionable woman can love food and be knowledgeable and actually cook.
Every city has a Donald Trump; ours is just the Trumpiest.
I always think, after the second glass of wine, you should be putting something in your stomach.
In truth, I am a single mother. But I don’t feel alone at all in parenting my daughter. Krishna has a whole other side of her family who loves her, too. And so Krishna is parented by me, but also by her grandmother and aunts and cousins and uncles and friends.
I will eat anything, at least once. For better or worse.
My mom was scared of the old Times Square so I was never allowed to go. Now I’m scared of the new Times Square, so I still never go.
Jewelry should not upstage you. I pick one hot point on my body that I’m going to highlight. Let one area do the singing – you don’t want to hear three songs at once.
