"I strongly believe that culinary love is not about having a French Passport, but about what you feel"
“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright (1856-1950)
“But doth not the appetite alter? A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
'Much Ado About Nothing'
“A man who loves good food has a way of making it gravitate toward his kitchen.”
Angelo Pellegrini 'The Unprejudiced Palate' (1948)
“All in all, I think the British actually hate food, otherwise they couldn't possibly abuse it so badly. Americans, on the other hand, love food but seldom care what it tastes like.”
“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-?)
“I love fruit, when it is expensive.”
Sir Arthur Wing Pinero (1855-1934)
“Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”
Harriet Van Horne, ‘Vogue’ 10/1956
