Common Food Quotes

"A stomach that is seldom empty despises common food."

Horace, Roman lyric poet (65 -8 B.C.)


“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”

James Beard (1903-1985)


“the most usual, common, and cheap sort of Food all China abounds in, and which all in that Empire eat, from the Emperor to the meanest Chinese; the Emperor and great Men as a Dainty, the common sort as necessary sustenance. It is called Teu Fu, that is Paste of Kidney Beans. I did not see how they made it. They drew the Milk out of the Kidney Beans, and turning it, make great Cakes of it like Cheeses, as big as a large Sive, and five or six fingers thick. All the Mass is as white as the very Snow, to look to nothing can be finer....Alone, it is insipid, but very good dress'd as I say and excellent fry'd in Butter.”

Friar Domingo Navarrete, 17th century
