Food and France Quotes


“France has found a unique way of controlling its unwanted critter population. They have done this by giving unwanted animals like snails, pigeons, and frogs fancy names, thus transforming common backyard pests into expensive delicacies. These are then served to gullible tourists, who will eat anything they can't pronounce.”

Chris Harris, 'Quotable Feast' by Sarah E. Parvis (2001)
 

 

“The French are sawed-off sissies who eat snails and slugs and cheese that smells like people's feet. Utter cowards who force their own children to drink wine, they gibber like baboons even when you try to speak to them in their own wimpy language.”

P. J. O'Rourke
 

 

“The two-pronged fork is used in northern Europe.  The English are armed with steel tridents with ivory handles - three pronged forks - but in France, we have the four-pronged fork, the height of civilization.”

E. Briffault, ‘Paris a table’ (1846)
 

 

Fishing is pretty good.....We had only to throw a line in the water to catch forty or fifty fish of the kind called here barbue (catfish). There is none like it in France. Travelers and poor people live on it very comfortably, for it can be eaten, and is very good cooked in water without sauce.”

Father Dollier and Father Galinée, travelling with La Salle (1669-1670)
