Famine Food Quotes


“I appreciate the potato only as a protection against famine, except for that, I know of nothing more eminently tasteless.”

Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)

 

 

“All knives and forks were working away at a rate that was quite alarming; very few words were spoken; and everybody seemed to eat his utmost, in self defence, as if a famine were expected to set in before breakfast-time to-morrow morning, and it had become high time to assert the first law of nature.”

Charles Dickens on an American dinner
‘Martin Chuzzlewit’
