In a lot of ways, a lot of smells that aren't necessarily edible smell good, and they remind you of certain aspects of food. So making those associations with what smells good or smells a certain way and pairing that with actual edible ingredients is one avenue that we take creatively.

Other quotes by Grant Achatz

What makes the food that we do at Alinea so interesting on the outside is that we really don't let ourselves say no to an idea.

I don't care if you're doing haute cuisine or burgers and pizza, just do it right.

We all eat two to six times a day. Why? Because we are supposed to, we are programmed to, we want to.

Food can be expressive and therefore food can be art.

A cookbook is not like being an author. It's writing down recipes; it's not writing.
