"The color of meat is due in large part to the state of myoglobin as it's cooking."

"The problem with reverse osmosis is that it takes out almost everything and coffee needs some minerals in it."

"I like foie gras fine, but I could live without it. Although, I don't think it's necessarily inhumane because their livers are 'diseased.' "
