"A gastronomic experience is fleeting; it can’t be captured. But all this wonderful stuff happens around the dinner table, the most profound life moments, and those are major experiences. That’s what I want to give people. So if they leave my table with a memory, with their friends and their family, I see my job as nurturing that. To me, memories are a success. It’s a miracle as far as that goes."
-Thomas Keller on what sets his food apart in a recent interview. [CBSW via Eater]
