Sheila Ostrander

  • True hospitality is a delicate balance of warmth and form.

  • Concocting a good guest list is like seasoning a gourmet sauce. Too many similar ingredients and it's bland. Too much variety in the seasoning and the result may be overpowering.

  • The courteous driver keeps a safe distance between cars and doesn't drive like one plane trying to refuel another.

  • ... travel has been stepped up to such a speed that one can have dinner in New York and indigestion in Madrid ...
