Before Dinner Food Quotes

“The half-hour before dinner has always been considered as the great ordeal through which the mistress, in giving a dinner-party, will either pass with flying colours, or lose many of her laurels.”

Isabella Beeton (1836-1865)
‘The Book of Household Management’ (1861)


“I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well made.”

James Bond, ‘Casino Royale’


“The cabbage surpasses all other vegetables. If, at a banquet, you wish to dine a lot and enjoy your dinner, then eat as much cabbage as you wish, seasoned with vinegar, before dinner, and likewise after dinner eat some half-dozen leaves. It will make you feel as if you had not eaten, and you can drink as much as you like.”

Cato (234-149 B.C.)
