A little daily wisdom from a NYT article about Thomas Keller

Article Title: What The Last Meal Taught Him

““Just to sit with your father and have a beer and smoke a cigar, that is really important,” Mr. Keller said.”

“The chef, who has built his professional life on a devotion to precision, analysis and control that borders on the obsessive, came to understand in new ways that life is messy, friends and colleagues say.

“This was one of the first times during his successful professional life that there was no guarantee how things were going to go on any given day,” Ms. Cunningham said. “You just had to take each day for what it was.”

Mr. Keller said he began to think more deeply about the importance of family and about his place beyond the stove. It has been, in many ways, the softening of a chef.”

“He reminds readers that life is better when you eat together with family and friends.”

““At the end of the day when we think about what we have, it’s memories.”

Oh New York Times, suddenly you interject a little wisdom into the Wednesday page of the Dining & Wine section, though the Date Night article is particularly apt.
