Quotations, sayings and aphorisms about food & beverages, eating & drinking and pleasures of the table
“The definitive recipe for any Italian dish has not yet appeared. We are still creating.”
“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)
“A world devoid of tomato soup, tomato sauce, tomato ketchup and tomato paste is hard to visualize.

Elizabeth David (1913-1992)
‘An Omelette and a Glass of Wine’, 1984
