Shadow Food Quotes

“What is literature compared with cooking? The one is shadow, the other is substance.”

E. V. Lucas (1868-1938), ‘365 Days and One More’


“Drunk? and speak parrot? and squabble? swagger? swear? and discourse fustian with one's own shadow?”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Othello'


“Once learnt, this business of cooking was to prove an ever growing burden. It scarcely bears thinking about, the time and labour that man and womankind has devoted to the preparation of dishes that are to melt and vanish in a moment like smoke or a dream, like a shadow, and as a post that hastes by, and the air closes behind them, afterwards no sign where they went is to be found.”

Rose Macaulay (1881-1958) ‘Personal Pleasures’


“You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars....We have munched Bridge burgers in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge and Cable burgers hard by the Golden Gate, Dixie burgers in the sunny South and Yankee Doodle burgers in the North....We had a Capitol Burger -- guess where. And so help us, in the inner courtyard of the Pentagon, a Penta burger.”

Charles Kuralt, journalist. (1934-1997)
