Food Skill Quotes

“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.”

John Ruskin

 

“All things require skill but an appetite.”

George Herbert, English poet (1593-1633)

 

“If the skill of the artist had failed, if he had served some ill-prepared dish, the cook was put in irons on the spot, or else was led to the triclinium (dining-room) by two henchmen and severely flogged in the presence of the guests.”

C. Dezobry, ‘Rome au siecle d'Augus’

 

When asked about his carving skills, replied: "I just yell at the bird and hope the meat will fall off."

Jeff Smith, the ‘Frugal Gourmet’

 

“Without wishing in the slightest degree to disparage the skill and labour of breadmakers by trade, truth compels us to assert our conviction of the superior wholesomeness of bread made in our own homes.”

Eliza Acton
‘Modern Cookery for Private Families’ (1845)
