"Innovation has to hurt a little bit, otherwise you aren't innovating."

"We have so many choices when it comes to food in this country. If people buy something that they don't like, there's something right around the corner that will satisfy their taste desires. It's about creating something that people crave and enjoy first, and nutrition usually comes second."

"We taste using our tongue and there are only five things that we taste; sweet, bitter, sour, salty, and umami. Anything else we experience is not a taste, it's something else all together."

--Barb Stuckey, author of "Taste What You're Missing" on Taste Matters

"In terms of timing, and people being open to the merging of arts and science- it's a beautiful thing. It's something that a lot of classic traditionalists wanted to reject. When you embrace [Modernist Cuisine], you realize that each really enhances the other and it's such a clean, beautiful relationship. It was prime for that, and people are responding; it's a testament to the progress of looking at the different roles of food." -- Maxime Bilet on Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking
