Food Waste Quotes

“It cannot be denied that an improved system of practical domestic cookery, and a better knowledge of its first principles, are still much needed in this country; where, from ignorance, or from mismanagement in their preparation, the daily waste of excellent provisions almost exceeds belief.”

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


“Eating and sleeping are a waste of time.”

Gerald Rudolph Ford (1913-?)


“The waste of many good materials, the vexation that frequently attends such mismanagements, and the curses not unfrequently bestowed on cooks with the usual reflection, that whereas God sends good meat, the devil sends cooks.”

E. Smith, 'The Compleat Housewife'
