Personal Quotes (2)

Why would a chef who owns five restaurants nick some cheese, some coleslaw and a few onions? The mind is a mysterious thing. I don't know myself why I did it.
I should have possibly been called Benjamin Button. You normally start nicking things when you're a kid, I started when I was 61. You normally smoke when you're 16, I started when I was 42. I just do things back to front.
