Quotes: Something to say about Food

If the soup had been as warm as the wine, if the wine had been as old as the turkey, and if the turkey had had a breast like the maid, it would have been a swell dinner.
~Duncan Hines

Of soup and love, the first is best.
~Spanish Proverb

Garlic is as good as ten mothers.
~Les Blank

Don’t be too daring in the kitchen. For example, don’t suddenly get involved with shallots. Later, when you are no longer a Lonely Guy, you can do shallots. Not now. If you know coriander, stay with coriander and don’t fool around. Even with coriander you’re on thin ice, but at least you’ve got a shot, because it’s familiar. Stay with safe things, like pepper.
~Bruce Jay Friedman (The Lonely Guy Cookbook, 1976)

Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.
~James Beard
