Stars Food Quotes

“The discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the discovery of a new star.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)


“Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!”

Dom Perignon, supposedly said this ‘at the moment he discovered’ champagne


“If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”

Robert Browning (1812-1889) English poet


“You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigatior 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)


Honey comes out of the air....At early dawn the leaves of trees are found bedewed with honey.... Whether this is the perspiration of the sky or a sort of saliva of the stars, or the moisture of the air purging itself, nevertheless it brings with it the great pleasure of its heavenly nature. It is always of the best quality when it is stored in the best flowers.”

Pliny (A.D. 23-79) ‘Natural History’, book 20
