"Significantly, the charge (if it is a charge) has been levelled at the gastronomic essay and the 'learned' cookery book that they have an affinity with pornography. Certainly, both gastronomy and pornography dwell on pleasures of the flesh, and in gastronomic literature as in pornography there is vicarious enjoyment to be had."

Gastón Acurio on eggs

"La magia del huevo en diez movimientos: Un gesto, pasado. Dos gestos, duro. Tres, poche. Cuatro, frito. Cinco, revuelto. Seis, omelette. Siete, tortilla. Ocho, merengue. Nueve, mayonesa, Diez souffle. De todos los miles de ingredientes del mundo, solo el huevo es capaz de dar tanto por tan poco."

- The magic of the egg in ten movements: One act, passed. Two acts, hard. Three, poached. Four, fried. Five, scrambled. Six, omelette. Seven, tortilla. Eight, meringue. Nine, mayonnaise. Ten, souffle. Of all the thousands of ingredients in the world, only the egg has the capacity to give so much for so little.
