The years of me making pleasant suggestions are gone; I am going to tell you what to do, what to buy, when to turn your oven on and how to make these dishes. If you listen, you’ll end up with a feast of beautiful things on your table in less than half an hour. This is about making people brilliant, on a daily basis.”
