“Food is the most primitive form of comfort.”
Sheilah Graham (1904-1988)
"Food, like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power, has that ability to comfort."
“Comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.”
The Song of Solomon 2:5
“Food is not about impressing people. It's about making them feel comfortable.”
Ina Garten, ‘The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook’
“What I love about cooking is that after a hard day, there is something comforting about the fact that if you melt butter and add flour and then hot stock, it will get thick! It's a sure thing! It's a sure thing in a world where nothing is sure; it has a mathematical certainty in a world where those of us who long for some kind of certainty are forced to settle for crossword puzzles.”
Nora Ephron, American journalist (1941-?)
“On a hot day in Virginia, I know nothing more comforting than a fine spiced pickle, brought up trout-like from the sparkling depths of the aromatic jar below the stairs of Aunt Sally's cellar.”
“At that comfortable tavern on Pontchartrain we had a bouillabaisse than which a better was never eaten at Marseilles; and not the least headache in the morning, I give you my word; on the contrary, you only wake with a sweet refreshing thirst for claret and water.”
William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)
“Some sensible person once remarked that you spend the whole of your life either in your bed or in your shoes. Having done the best you can by shoes and bed, devote all the time and resources at your disposal to the building up of a fine kitchen. It will be, as it should be, the most comforting and comfortable room in the house.”
Elizabeth David (1913-1992) ‘French Country Cooking’
“Peace of mind and a comfortable income are predicted by a dream of eating potatoes in any form.”
Ned Ballantyne & Stella Coeli
‘Your Horoscope and Your Dreams’ (1940)
“From morning till night, sounds drift from the kitchen, most of them familiar and comforting....On days when warmth is the most important need of the human heart, the kitchen is the place you can find it; it dries the wet sock, it cools the hot little brain.”
