Curse Food Quotes

Cooks are in some ways very much like actors; they must be fit and strong, since acting and cooking are two of the most exacting professions. They must be blessed - or cursed, whichever way you care to look at it - with what is called the artistic temperament, which means that if they are to act or cook at all well, it cannot be for duds or dummies.”

Andre Simon (1877-1970),
‘The Concise Encyclopedia of Gastronomy’ (1952)


“The waste of many good materials, the vexation that frequently attends such mismanagements, and the curses not unfrequently bestowed on cooks with the usual reflection, that whereas God sends good meat, the devil sends cooks.”

E. Smith, 'The Compleat Housewife'


    “Too much work, and no vacation,
    Deserves at least a small libation.
    So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses;
     Work's the curse of the drinking classes.”

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
