Don't Be a Show-Off

“A good cook is someone who is both a good hostess and willing to try something new! But someone who insists on trying to ‘educate’ the palate of others by feeding them foods they do not care for—or if impressing people with one’s skill and sophistication is more important than pleasing them—then that person is not a good cook, just a show-off.”
