 I never throw food away, if it happens is because what I’ve done is awful beyond any possibility to save it or eat it: it seldom occurs but it can happen.

Lately I’ve done some zucchini and fresh cheese patties taken from a magazine which, once baked, were slimy and smelled so bad I had to put everything in the trash can.

I remember a chocolate and coffee cake good only for walls’ building.
