Husbands and Food Quotes

“American women expect to find in their husbands a perfection that English women only hope to find in their butlers.”

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)


“Probably no strychnine has sent as many husbands into their graves as mealtime scolding has, and nothing has driven more men into the arms of other women as the sound of a shrill whine at table.”

M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
'An Alphabet for Gourmets' (1949)


“Fools are as like husbands as pilchards are to herrings; the husbands the bigger.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Twelfth Night'


“A woman who knows how to compose a soup or a salad that is perfectly harmonious in flavour ought to be clever at mixing together the sweet and harsh elements of a man's character, and she will understand how to charm and keep forever her husband's heart and soul.”

Berjane, ‘French Dishes for English Tables’ (1931)
