Art Food Quotes

“Murals in restaurants are on a par with the food in museums.”
Peter de Vries, American writer. (1910-1993)
 

“A great city is one that handles art and garbage equally well.”
Bob Talbert, Newspaper columnist. (1936-1999)


“All art is autobiographical; the pearl is the oyster's autobiography.”
Federico Fellini, Italian film director. (1920-1993)
 

“Grilling, broiling, barbecuing - whatever you want to call it - is an art, not just a matter of building a pyre and throwing on a piece of meat as a sacrifice to the gods of the stomach.”
James Beard, 'Beard on Food'


“Prepared and fast foods have given us the time and freedom to see cooking as an art form - a form of creative expression.”
Jeff Smith, 'The Frugal Gourmet Keeps the Feast'


"Cookery is not chemistry. It is an art. It requires instinct and taste rather than exact measurements."
Marcel Boulestin


"The preparation of good food is merely another expression of art, one of the joys of civilized living"
Dione Lucas


"Cooking is an art and patience a virtue... Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing - love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist - not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love."
Keith Floyd, ‘A Feast of Floyd’


"The art of dining well is no slight art, the pleasure no slight pleasure."
Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, French essayist
(1533-1592) 'Essays'

 

“Cookery is become an art, a noble science; cooks are gentlemen.”
Robert Burton (1577-1640) English cleric and writer
'Anatomy of a Melancholy'

 

“Cooking is an art, but you eat it too.”
Marcella Hazan
 

“Cookery is naturally the most ancient of the arts, as of all arts it is the most important.”
George Ellwanger (1848-1906)
‘Pleasures of the Table’ (1902)

 

“Love and business and family and religion and art and patriotism are nothing but shadows of words when a man is starving.”
O. Henry, ‘Heart of the West’
 

“To see the butcher slap the steak before he laid it on the block, and give his knife a sharpening, was to forget breakfast instantly. It was agreeable too - it really was - to see him cut it off so smooth and juicy. There was nothing savage in the act, although the knife was large and keen; it was a piece of art, high art; there was delicacy of touch, clearness of tone, skilful handling of the subject, fine shading. It was the triumph of mind over matter; quite.”
Charles Dickens (1812-1870) ‘Martin Chuzzlewit’
