"People Don't Understand That Trying To Cook At Home Unless You Know What You're Doing Is Going To Cost You More Money Or You're Going To Eat Very Lousy."

Which famous chef claimed this over a recent roundtable discussion, a sentiment that I have been trying to convince my parents of for years?  Answer below...

It was veteran chef Daniel Boulud over at NY Mag on the evolution of the industry, tips for longevity and the glimpse at the future. On a panel with fellow chefs Marco Canora, and Floyd Cardoz.  More from Boulud:

"But I think that the most dramatic thing happening right now is that the media are pulling people into a depression rather than the recession. Why? When you take this month’s Bon Appétit, Gourmet, Food & Wine, it’s all about cook at home, cook cheap, buy cheap, stay at home, don’t go out."
