Intellectual Food Quotes

“Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervous sensibilities,...will always be the favoured beverage of the intellectual.”

Thomas de Quincey, 'Confessions of an English Opium-Eater' (1821)


“Garlic is the catsup of intellectuals.”



“Dull witted brooding people love to stuff themselves with quantities of heavy food, just like animals for fattening. Bubbly intellectual people love foods which stimulate the taste buds without overloading the belly. Profound, meditative people prefer neutral foods which do not have an assertive flavor and are not difficult to digest, and therefore do not demand too much attention.”

Karl Friedrich von Rumohr, early 19th century gourmet.(Choice Cuts by Mark Kurlansky, 2002)


“Intellectual men who quickly wolf down whatever nourishment is necessary for their bodies with a kind of disdain, may be very rational and have a noble intelligence, but they are not men of taste."

Sainte-Beuve, Charles Augustin (1804-1869)
French historian
