Good Meal Food Quotes
“You can't fake quality any more than you can fake a good meal.”
William S. Burroughs, American writer (1914-1997)
"A good meal must be as harmonious as a symphony and as well-constructed as a Norman cathedral."
Fernand Point (1897-1955) 'Ma gastronomie'
“Wine makes a symphony of a good meal.”
Fernande Garvin, ‘The Art of French Cooking’
“A good meal soothes the soul as it regenerates the body. From the abundance of it flows a benign benevolence. A good and copius dinner begets a mellowing influence; it permeates the bosom with a bland philanthropy of sentiment, embracive of all classes, sects and races of man.”
Frederick W. Hackwood, ‘Good Cheer’ (1911)
“The fact is that it takes more than ingredients and technique to cook a good meal. A good cook puts something of himself into the preparation -- he cooks with enjoyment, anticipation, spontaneity, and he is willing to experiment.”
Pearl Bailey (1918-1990) ‘Pearl's Kitchen’ (1973)
