Family Food Quotes

“The bagel is a lonely roll to eat all by yourself because in order for the true taste to come out you need your family. One to cut the bagels, one to toast them, one to put on the cream cheese and the lox, one to put them on the table and one to supervise.”
Gertrude Berg (1899-1966)

 

"Happy is said to be the family which can eat onions together. They are, for the time being, separate, from the world, and have a harmony of aspiration."
Charles Dudley Warner, ‘My Summer in a Garden’ (1871)

 

“The cold truth is that family dinners are more often than not an ordeal of nervous indigestion, preceded by hidden resentment and ennui and accompanied by psychosomatic jitters.”
M.F.K. Fisher

 

“The average American family hasn't time for television.”
‘New York Times’, 1939

 

“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.”
Judith Martin

 

“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for 30 years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.”
Calvin Trillin

 

“What? Sunday morning in an English family and no sausages? God bless my soul, what's the world coming to, eh?”
Dorothy Sayers, British writer (1893-1957)

 

“I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than badly cooked dinners and untidy ways.”
Isabella Beeton (1836-1865)

 

“Love and business and family and religion and art and patriotism are nothing but shadows of words when a man is starving.”
O. Henry, ‘Heart of the West’
