Boiled Beef Food Quotes

“Boiled beef is a wholesome food which appeases hunger promptly and is quite easily digestible but by itself has no great restorative powers, as in the process of boiling the meat loses a part of the juices which can be converted into animal matter.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)


People who eat boiled beef: 
"First the stick-in-the-muds who eat it because their parents eat it and who, following this practice with blind submissiveness, even expect to be imitated by their children.
Secondly the impatient, who abhor inactivity at table and have formed the habit of pouncing upon the first thing that is served (materiam subjectam).
Thirdly the couldn't-care-less brigade, who, not being blessed with the sacred spark, consider meals as forced labour, putting all that can nourish them on the same level and behaving at table 'like an oyster in its bed'.
Fourthly the devourers, having an appetite of which they try to conceal the full extent, who hasten to cram down into their stomachs the first victim which presents itself, to appease the gastric fires consuming them, to serve as a foundation for all the other consignments which they propose to dispatch to the same destination."

Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)


“Beware of meat twice boil'd, & an old foe reconcil'd.”

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ‘Poor Richard's Almanac’


“Professors never eat boiled beef, out of respect for their principles and because they know the incontestable truth that boiled beef is flesh without its juice.”
