I grew up going to bakeries in Tel Aviv; that’s where we got our birthday cakes, they were always European baking and butter creams. We have such good baking in Israel, and we have the Diaspora of Jews from all over, and we learned early on to adapt and absorb flavors from all over.

If you made all the French fries you ate, you would eat them much less often, if only because they’re so much work. The same holds true for fried chicken, chips, cakes, pies, and ice cream. Enjoy these treats as often as you’re willing to prepare them – chances are good it won’t be every day.
Michael Pollan
When it comes to cakes and puddings, savouries, bread and tea cakes, the English cannot be surpassed.

In the glory days of Orioles, when I was a newbie baseball writer for the Post, the roster of talkers was as good as the everyday lineup.

I love a good breakfast – grits and eggs, French toast, turkey bacon. My grandmother on my father’s side used to make tea cakes, and her breakfasts were unbelievable.

When I got to France I realized I didn’t know very much about food at all. I’d never had a real cake. I’d had those cakes from cake mixes or the ones that have a lot of baking powder in them. A really good French cake doesn’t have anything like that in it – it’s all egg power.

Paul Hollywood
I knew more about produce from the sea than any of my schoolmates, and my reports in school, from kindergarten on, amused and shocked my classmates and teachers.

I’m a big potato chip girl. I don’t like chocolate and cakes and all that, but I have to have my potato chips. I’ve got bags in the back of my car right now! But I never beat myself up about it, because, look: You can’t give up every damn thing. You need something in your life that you like just because you like it!
NeNe Leakes
The sugar tax is fine. I agree with that. But I think it probably doesn’t go too far. But then, I work on ‘The Great British Bake Off.’ We make cakes with sugar and butter. I can’t be too critical. It is like anything in life: it is all about moderation.
Paul Hollywood
I get my competitive edge from my mum. When we’re together, we’re competitive about little things – it’ll be, ‘I can bake cakes better than you can.’ But she’s never been a pushy parent; she’s always just supported me.

Rose Matafeo
I wanted to help my sister, Latoya, because she’s an awesome cook. She’s one of the best culinary people I’ve ever met.

Mickie James
I have never had a pair of knickers sent in the post. I’ve had jams, lemon drizzle cakes, West Ham football shirts and footballs and books. I’ve had pillowcases with my face on, tea towels with my face on, face flannels with my face on, towels with my face on.
Jeremy Kyle
My mum came to the set of my second movie ‘Connie and Carla,’ and she had made food for the whole cast, including mini bun cakes with little flowers sticking out of each one.

At her birthday, my seven-year-old daughter will say that she wants these big cakes and certain expensive toys as presents, and I can’t say no to her. It would just break my heart. But when I was little, for birthdays we just played outside and we were happy if we got any cake.
