Food Duty Quotes

"The duty of a good Cusinier is to transmit to the next generation everything he has learned and experienced."

Fernand Point (1941)


“It is the duty of all papas and mammas to forbid their children to drink coffee, unless they wish to have little dried-up machines, stunted and old at the age of twenty....I once saw a man in London, in Leicester Square, who had been crippled by immoderate indulgence in coffee; he was no longer in any pain, having grown accustomed to his condition, and had cut himself down to five or six cups a day.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)


“it is, in my view, the duty of an apple to be crisp and crunchable, but a pear should have such a texture as leads to silent consumption.”

Edward Bunyard, 'The Anatomy of Dessert'
