"You could say my life has been a succession of big dinners enjoyed with as many of my friends and family that can be squeezed around the table--all eating, talking, and laughing. I have sometimes wondered which part I enjoy the most. Is it the tasty meal, the flowing wine, or the boisterous conversation that so often ensues as a result of the first two elements? Marietta McCarty goes at it rather brilliantly from another angle, encouraging you to put the lively conversation first.

Welcome to the first seating of your own Philosophy Dinner Club."

--Tom Douglas, executive chef, restaurateur, and author

"Talking with Marietta is always great fun. And reading this book is almost as much of a joy as having her in the room with you. If you like ideas and you like food, you are holding in your hands an ideal companion."

--Tom Graham, host of WMRA's NPR talk show Virginia Insight
