Bad Cooking
Bad Cookery Quotes

“My cooking was and still is about the worst in America.  George is so kind about it.”

Barbara Bush


“....while bad cooking can ruin the very best of raw foodstuffs, all the arts of all the cooks in the world can do no more than palliate things stale, flat and unprofitable.”

'Dishes & Beverages Of The Old South'
Martha McCulloch-Williams (1913)


“Every country possesses, it seems, the sort of cuisine it deserves, which is to say the sort of cuisine it is appreciative enough to want. I used to think that the notoriously bad cooking of the English was an example to the contrary, and that the English cook the way they do because, through sheer technical deficiency, they had not been able to master the art of cooking. I have discovered to my stupefaction that the English cook that way because that is the way they like it."

Waverly Root (1903-1982)


“The difference between good and bad cookery can scarcely be more strikingly shown than in the manner in which sauces are prepared and served. If well made....they prove that both skill and taste have been exerted in its arrangements. When coarsely or carelessly prepared....they greatly discredit the cook.”

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