Aristotle Food Quotes

    “Said Aristotle unto Plato,
    'Have another sweet potato?'
    Said Plato unto Aristotle,
    'Thank you, I prefer the bottle.'”

Owen Wister (1860-1938), American novelist


“But, lady, as women, what wisdom may be ours if not the philosophies of the kitchen? Lupercio Leonardo spoke well when he said: how well one may philosophize when preparing dinner. And I often say, when observing these trivial details: had Aristotle prepared vituals [sic], he would have written more.”

Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
a Mexican nun three hundred years ago
