Fancy Food Quotes

“Merely to please the eye by such fanciful and elaborate decorations as distinguish many modern dinners, or to flatter the palate by the production of new and enticing dainties, ought not to be the principal aim, at least, of any work on cookery.”

Eliza Acton
‘Modern Cookery for Private Families’ (1845)


“I never see any home cooking. All I get is fancy stuff.”

Prince Philip, Duke of Ediburgh


“You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients.”

Julia Child


“Fancy cream puffs so soon after breakfast. The very idea made one shudder. All the same, two minutes later Jose and Laura were licking their fingers with that absorbed inward look that comes only from whipped cream.”

Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923)
