Good Bread Quotes

“Good bread makes the homeliest meal acceptable, and the coarsest fare appetizing, while the most luxurious table is not even tolerable without it.”

Buckeye Cookery and Practical Housekeeping’ by Estelle Woods Wilcox (1877)


“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.”

James Beard (1903-1985)


“An honest laborious Country-man, with good Bread, Salt and a little Parsley, will make a contented Meal with a roasted Onion.”

John Evelyn (1620-1706)


“The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water, is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight.”

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


“The North thinks it know how to make corn bread, but this is a gross superstition. Perhaps no bread in the world is quite as good as Southern corn bread, and perhaps no bread in the world is quite as bad as the Northern imitation of it.”

Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (1835-1910)
From an autobiographical sketch, 1898
