Quotes about Ladies and Food

“Queen Elizabeth and her ladies breakfasted on meat, bread and strong ale. Our modern ladies take tea or coffee, and thin slices of toast.”

Peter Lund Simmonds
'The Curiosities of Food' (1859)


“Permit me to point out to you, Mylord, that a gastronomical reunion without ladies is in my eyes a garden without flowers, the ocean without its waves, a flotilla without sails.”

Alexis Soyer (1810-1858)
M.F.K. Fisher's translation of The Physiology of taste


“The Spanish ladies of the New World are madly addicted to chocolate, to such a point that, not content to drink it several times each day, they even have it served to them in church.”

Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
The Physiology of Taste (1825)
