Selections from Lao Tzu’s Cookbook

“The journey of eating a thousand chalupas begins with one bite.”

“The best quality is like gravy. The gravy’s goodness is that it benefits the myriad things but does not quarrel, and it willingly goes to where mashed potatoes hate, Thus it is almost like the Dao.”

“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, beefy minestrone. These three are your greatest treasures.”

“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has lemon-garlic shrimp is mightier still.”
