Quotes about Female Cooks


"Those who underestimate the feminine sex where culinary matters are concerned forget their high level of achievement which has earned them the accolade of cordon-bleu.  It is impossible to bring more skill and delicacy, more taste and intelligence to the choice and preparation of dishes than women have brought."

Eugene Briffault ‘Paris a table’ (1846)

 

"The cook was a good cook, as cooks go; and as cooks go she went."

Saki

 

“A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.”

Elsa Schiaparelli, ‘Shocking Life’ (1890-1973)

 

“She did not so much cook as assassinate food.”

Storm Jameson (1891-1986)

 

“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”

Laurie Colwin
