Quotations About Food

General Food Quotes

“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”
–John Gunther

“You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars.”
–Charles Kuralt

“The story of barbecue is the story of America: Settlers arrive on great unspoiled continent, discover wondrous riches, set them on fire and eat them.”

–Vince Staten

“Nothing rekindles my spirits, gives comfort to my heart and mind,
more than a visit to Mississippi… and to be regaled as I often have
been, with a platter of fried chicken, field peas, collard greens, fresh
corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes with French dressing… and to top
it all off with a wedge of freshly baked pecan pie.”
–Craig Claiborne

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
–George Bernard Shaw

“Proust had his madeleines; I am devastated by the scent of yeast bread rising.”
–Bert Greene

“You know how I feel about tacos. It’s the only food shaped like a smile. A beef smile.”
–Danielle Sanchez-Witzel and Michael Pennie

“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook
in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice
and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”
–Laurie Colwin

“Hunger is the best sauce in the world.”

“When the girl returned, some hours later, she carried a tray, with a cup of fragrant tea steaming on it; and a plate piled up with very hot buttered toast, cut thick, very brown on both sides, with the butter running through the holes in it in great golden drops, like honey from the honeycomb. The smell of that buttered toast simply talked to Toad, and with no uncertain voice; talked of warm kitchens, of breakfasts on bright frosty mornings, of cosy parlour firesides on winter evenings, when one’s ramble was over and slippered feet were propped on the fender, of the purring of contented cats, and the twitter of sleepy canaries.”
–The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame

“Red onions are especially divine. I hold a slice up to the sunlight pouring in
through the kitchen window, and it glows like a fine piece of antique glass.
Cool watery-white with layers delicately edged with imperial purple…strong,
humble, peaceful…with that fiery nub of spring green in the center…”
–Mary Hayes Grieco

“The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you’re hungry again.”
–George Miller

Seafood Quotations

“Fish, to taste right, must swim three times -in water, in butter, and in wine.”
–Polish proverb

“In the hands of an able cook, fish can become an inexhaustible source of perpetual delight.”
–Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

“Fish is held out to be one of the greatest luxuries of the table and not only necessary, but even indispensable at all dinners where there is any pretense of excellence or fashion.”
–Isabella Beeton

“What will be the death of me are buillabaisses, food spiced with pimiento, shellfish, and a load of exquisite rubbish which I eat in disproportionate quantities.”
–Emile Zola

“Monkfish is called the poor man’s lobster. As long as people never see what it looks like whole, they love it.”
–Werner Auer, Executive chef, Hyatt Regency Hotel, Houston

“If I go down in for anything in history, I would like to be known as the person who convinced the American people that catfish is one of the finest eating fishes in the world.”
–Willard Scott

“As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their
faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving
only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their
cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste
of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to
make plans.”
–Ernest Hemingway
