Actors and Food Quotations

Cooks are in some ways very much like actors; they must be fit and strong, since acting and cooking are two of the most exacting professions. They must be blessed - or cursed, whichever way you care to look at it - with what is called the artistic temperament, which means that if they are to act or cook at all well, it cannot be for duds or dummies.”

Andre Simon (1877-1970),
The Concise Encyclopedia of Gastronomy (1952)


“And, most dear actors, eat no onions nor garlic, for we are to utter sweet breath.”

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
A Midsummer Night's Dream


“Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?”

H.M. Warner, Warner Brothers, 1927
