Eschew perfection. Strive for excellence.

Thomas Keller
The French Laundry Cookbook

When you acknowledge, as you must, that there is no such thing as perfect food, only the idea of it, then the real purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear: to make people happy, that is what cooking is all about.

For a similar sentiment see:

I ask your mother
to tell
in a language yet to be invented
that the word for excellence is perfection

For Paloma

And so for day 2886
