Food & Silver Quotes


“....octagonal plates and silver domes....conceal the minute portions of food in snooty restaurants run by egomaniac chefs.”

John Mortimer, Introduction to 'Rumpole' (1994)

 


“Forks are made of iron or steel: noblemen eat with silver forks. I have gone on using a fork even now that I am back in England. This has occasioned more than one joke and one of my intimate friends did not hesitate to apply to me in the middle of a dinner the adjective 'Furciferous'.”

Thomas Coryate, English traveler (1608)
