"When we no longer have good cooking in the world, we will have no literature, nor high and sharp intelligence, nor friendly gatherings, no social harmony."
Marie-Antoine CarĂªme

There will always be cooking in the world because people need to eat to survive. Once a person is full then they can pursue higher interests. Most social gatherings are build around food, networking and other business ventures are successful with food as a part of it.
