Fowl Food Quotes

“And what did your uncle have for dinner the night he saw these 'ghosts'?..... Perhaps a morsel of underdone fowl?”
Dr. Watson, 'The Adventure of the Christmas Ghosts' by Bill Crider (1996)

 

“I never fancied broiling fowls; - though once broiled, judiciously buttered, and judgmatically salted and peppered, there is no one who will speak more respectfully, not to say reverentially, of a broiled fowl than I will.”
Ishmael in 'Moby Dick' by Herman Mellville (1851)

 

"I am a strong partisan of second causes, and I believe firmly that the entire gallinaceous order (fowl) has been merely created to furnish our larders and our banquets."
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘The Physiology of Taste’

 

“We were not satisfied with the qualities which nature gave to poultry; art stepped in and, under the pretext of improving fowls, has made martyrs of them.”
Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin

 

“Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liver slices fried with breadcrumbs, fried hencod's roe. Most of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of scented urine.”
James Joyce (1882-1941)
