"I had my first culinary experience from a chow-chow cart, an eggroll, prior to the food trucks that come around." [18:50]

"I guess I was cooking a little leaner food and one day Greg came home from high school and said, 'look mom, I'm hungry... and I don't mean vegetable hungry, I mean meat hungry!'"[22:14]

"Inviting people to your house, setting the table, and giving them food from the heart is a real special occasion." [45:26]
