Gratification Food Quotes

“The artichoke above all is the vegetable expression of civilised living, of the long view, of increasing delight by anticipation and crescendo. No wonder it was once regarded as an aphrodisiac. It had no place in the troll's world of instant gratification. It makes no appeal to the meat-and-two-veg mentality.”

Jane Grigson (1928-1990) ‘Vegetable Book’ (1978)


“Confectionary is the poetry of epicurism it throws over the heavy enjoyments of the table the relief of a milder indulgence, and dispenses the delights of a lighter and more harmless gratification of the appetite.”

‘The Complete Confectioner, Pastry-Cook, and Baker’
by Parkinson, Practical Confectioner (1864)
