Italian Food Quotes

“The definitive recipe for any Italian dish has not yet appeared. We are still creating.”
Luigi Barzini


“In the 20th century, the French managed to get a death on the myth that they produce the world's best food. The hype has been carefully orchestrated, and despite the fact that the most popular food in the last quarter has undoubtedly been Italian, the French have managed to maintain that mental grip.”
Clarissa Dickson Wright, 'Food' (1999)


"The trouble with eating Italian food is that 5 or 6 days later you're hungry again."
George Miller, British writer


“Italian restaurants with more than 120 entrees are always disappointing.”
Miss Piggy, 'Miss Piggy's Guide to Life' (1981)


"They eat the dainty food of famous chefs with the same pleasure with which they devour gross peasant dishes, mostly composed of garlic and tomatoes, or fisherman's octopus and shrimps, fried in heavily scented olive oil on a little deserted beach."
Luigi Barzini, ‘The Italians’ (1964)


“It it had been an Italian who codified the world of cuisine, it would be thought of as Italian.”


“A world devoid of tomato soup, tomato sauce, tomato ketchup and tomato paste is hard to visualize. Could the tin and processed food industries have got where they have without the benefit of the tomato compounds which colour, flavour, thicken and conceal so many deficiencies? How did the Italians eat spaghetti before the advent of the tomato? Was there such a thing as tomato-less Neapolitan pizza?”
Elizabeth David (1913-1992)
‘An Omelette and a Glass of Wine’, 1984
