Food is one part of the experience. And it has to be somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the dining experience. But the rest counts as well: The mood, the atmosphere, the music, the feeling, the design, the harmony between what you have on the plate and what surrounds the plate. Alain Ducasse

Television viewing has become for me a completely different experience, because I don't watch shows on a weekly basis.

I started, and it really just took over, and I realised, 'Wow, this is an amazing experience.' Alexandra Adornetto

You do run and scream and cry and work yourself up into hysterics, and then you get back to the hotel at the end of the day, and you feel really off and really strange.
