Grease Food Quotes

“....grease is not gravy. How often I have wished, from the depths of a loathing stomach, that certain well-meaning house keepers - at whose boards I have sat as guest or boarder - who fry beafsteak in lard, and send ham to table swimming in fat; upon the surface of whose soups float spheroids of oil that encase the spoon with blubber, and coat the lips and tongue of the eater with flaky scales-that these dear souls who believe in 'old-fashioned cookery,' understood this simple law of digestive gravity!”

‘Breakfast, Luncheon and Tea’
Marion Harland [Mary Virginia Terhune] (1875)


“The predominance of grease in the American kitchen, coupled with the habits of hearty eating, and the constant expectoration, are the causes of the diseases of the stomach which are so common in America.”

James Fenimore Cooper, American novelist
‘[The Last of the Mohicans’, etc.] (1789-1851)
