Certainty Food Quotes

“What I love about cooking is that after a hard day, there is something comforting about the fact that if you melt butter and add flour and then hot stock, it will get thick! It's a sure thing! It's a sure thing in a world where nothing is sure; it has a mathematical certainty in a world where those of us who long for some kind of certainty are forced to settle for crossword puzzles.”

Nora Ephron, American journalist (1941-?)


“Coleridge holds that a man cannot have a pure mind who refuse apple-dumplings. I am not certain but that he is right.”

Charles Lamb (1775-1834)


“This is not that, and that is certainly not this, and at the same time an oyster stew is not stewed, and although they are made of the same things and even cooked almost the same way, an oyster soup should never be called a stew, nor stew soup.”

M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
