Quote of the day: Jenna Lyons

Jenna Lyons Real Housewives of New York - Gavin Bond

“There’s something about caterers that they love blue cheese, caviar or salmon roe, and Champagne, which has to create the worst breath situation possibly known to man. Throw in a little bit of dill, and you’re done. Tragic. It’s so disgusting … My one strategy is to stand by the door to the kitchen where the servers are coming out. Then you get them right when the food is coming out. If you stand away from the kitchen, by the time it gets to you, the little macaroni-and-cheeses or mini grilled cheeses nobody else ate have coagulated, and the servers have been bumped around so they’re not in the best mood.”
Jenna Lyons, Bon Appétit

This vintage Bon Appétit quote from Jenna Lyons via Amy Odell’s Back Row newsletter is making me feel I need to watch The Real Housewives of New York. I’m a reality TV avoider so should I, or shouldn’t I?

(P.S. she’s so right about the catering pro-tips.)
