Quotations, sayings and aphorisms about food & beverages, eating & drinking and pleasures of the table
“The frying pan you should give to your enemy. Food should not be prepared in fat. Our bodies are adapted to a stone age diet of roots and vegetables.”
Denis Burkitt (1911-1993)
“The frying-pan, in unskilled hands, is a more deadly implement than the lancet - and the millions that use it, from Maine to California, are almost all unskilful.”
Randolph Harrison (1830-1900)
“Frying Pan, n. One part of the penal apparatus employed in that punitive institution, a woman's kitchen.”
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)
“The frying-pan has awful sins to answer for. What untold horrors of dyspepsia have arisen from its smoky depths, like the ghosts from witches' caldrons!”
Christopher Crowfield (pseudonym of Harriet Beecher Stowe) 'House and Home Papers' (1865)
