Number Food Quotes

Douglas Adams, 'Life, The Universe and Everything' (1982)


“Every year the number of new cookbooks increases, but in spite of them the progress made in this most useful of the arts is not ever overpowering. On the contrary, we must regretfully admit that nowadays people no longer prepare the fine and nourishing dishes that our mothers used to make.”

Anna Dorn, Cookbook Author (1834)


“I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.”

Mae West


“The fine arts are five in number, namely: painting, sculpture, poetry, music, and architecture, the principal branch of the latter being pastry.”

Antonin Careme (Marie-Antoine Careme) (1783-1833)

Nubar Gulbenkian (Observer, 1965)
