  • Quotes

    • Andrew: (to David Lebowitz) Do you know something? Up until about 30 seconds ago, I liked and I admired you. But when you said all of that bacon is going in there, that's when I fell in love.

    • Andrew: (about the cheese aging cellar) Wow! A much different smell down here.
      Clotilde: Yeah, more musty and . . .
      Andrew: Yeah, oh yeah. It's all that mold. Everything's growing. The air is thick with a smell like rotten eggs trampled by the unwashed feet of a thousand teenage boys.

    • Andrew: Zimmern Rule #5, the sharper the contrast, the better the food.
