“People who love to talk food and theater are never at a loss for conversation.”
James Beard (1903-1985)
“I went to dinner, which was served in a small private room of the club with the usual piano and fiddlers present to make conversation difficult and comfort impossible.”
Mark Twain (1835-1910)
“Food is a subject of conversation more spiritually refreshing even than the weather, for the number of possible remarks about the weather is limited, whereas of food you can talk on and on and on.”
A.A. Milne, 'Lunch' (1934)
"Conversation is the enemy of good wine and food."
Alfred Hitchcock, (1899-1980)
“If you are ever at a loss to support a flagging conversation, introduce the subject of eating.”
Leigh Hunt (1784-1859)
“Lettuce is like conversation: It must be fresh and crisp, and so sparkling that you scarcely notice the bitter in it.”
Charles Dudley Warnerg, 19th century
“The dinner table is the center for the teaching and practicing not just of table manners but of conversation, consideration, tolerance, family feeling, and just about all the other accomplishments of polite society except the minuet.”
Dinner is the "principal act of the day that can only be carried out in a worthy manner by people of wit and humor; for it is not sufficient just to eat at dinner. One has to talk with a calm and discreet gaiety. The conversation must sparkle like the rubies in the entremets wines, it must be delightfully suave with the sweetmeats of the dessert, and become very profound with the coffee."
Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870)
