"Wine is an integral part of every part of Jewish life- Friday nights, every celebration, etc. And the only grapes were available were of the Labrusca variety, and they need sugar to make them palatable. So that's when the tradition- in fact, it's a new tradition, only 100 years old- of [sweet] kosher wine started." -- Jay Buchsbaum on A Taste of the Past

"The producers invariably want to be judged by the quality of the wine, not whether or not it's kosher. That's first and foremost." --Jay Buchsbaum on A Taste of the Past

"There's sweet cream butter and cultured butter. They require different types of handling. All the cream no matter what needs to come from really good milk."

"Usually when people make butter in the kitchen, it's by accident. They're usually trying to whip cream."

"Sadly the best indicator of quality in butter is probably price."

--Harold McGee on Cutting the Curd
