FOOD QUOTES SECTION
Quotations, sayings and aphorisms about food & beverages, eating & drinking and pleasures of the table
“It was a nice breakfast - two hard boiled eggs, a piece of Danish, and a Coca-Cola spiked with gin.”
John Cheever, 'The Chimera' (1951)
"The table was set up inside the cartshed. On it there were four sirloins of beef, six fricassees of chicken, casseroled veal, three legs of mutton and, in the centre, a beautiful roasted sucking pig, flanked by four chitterlings with sorrel."
The wedding breakfast from ‘Madame Bovary’
"Coffee and cigarettes, you know? That's, like, the breakfast of champions."
Jim Jarmusch, ‘Blue in the Face’ (film)
“But fried hog's feet were nearly the best of hog killing. After boiling tender, the feet were split lengthwise in half, rolled in sifted cornmeal, salted and peppered, and fried crisp in plenty of boiling hot fat. Served with hot biscuit, and stewed sundried peaches, along with strong coffee, brown and fragrant, they made a supper or breakfast one could rejoice in.”

Martha McCulloch-Williams (1913)
J.M. Brinnin describing Dylan Thomas' arrival at Idlewild Airport at 7 a.m. "When finally he was processed through customs, he came jauntily toward me; we shook hands gingerly, picked up his string-tied bundle of luggage, and went straight to the airport bar for a breakfast of double scotch and soda."
"What a breakfast! Pot of hare; ditto of trout; pot of prepared shrimps; tin of sardines; beautiful beefsteak; eggs, mutton, large loaf and butter, not forgetting capital tea. There's a breakfast for you!"
George Borrow, English writer (1803-1881)
'Wild Wales' (1862)
