Culture Food Quotes

“Culture is what you butcher would have if he were a surgeon.”

Mary Pettibone Poole
'A Glass Eye at a Keyhole' (1938).

 

“In terms of fast food and deep understanding of the culture of fast food, I'm your man.”

Bill Gates (???)

 

“There are may of us who cannot but feel dismal about the future of various cultures. Often it is hard not to agree that we are becoming culinary nitwits, dependent upon fast foods and mass kitchens and megavitamins for our basically rotten nourishment.”

M. F. K. Fisher

 

“Food history is as important as a baroque church. Governments should recognize cultural heritage and protect traditional foods.  A cheese is as worthy of preserving as a sixteenth-century building.”

Carlo Petrini

 

“Americans, more than any other culture on earth, are cookbook cooks; we learn to make our meals not from any oral tradition, but from a text. The just-wed cook brings to the new household no carefully copied collection of the family's cherished recipes, but a spanking new edition of Fannie Farmer or The Joy of Cooking.”

John Thorne, American food writer

 

“Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single most significant trademarks of a culture.”

Mark Kurlansky, 'Choice Cuts' (2002)
