Lobster Quotes

Perfectly prepared lobster are "not unlike hot curds, juicy and tender, and sweet as scorched honey from ocean depths."

Kenneth Robert, 'Northwest Passage'.

 

"A truly destitute man is not one without riches, but the poor wretch who has never partaken of lobster."

anonymous

 

“Time will show as the Lobster said when they assured him he would become red if he fell into the boiler.”

Edward Lear, English artist, writer (1812-1888)
'literary nonsense'

 

“All the ingenious men, and all the scientific men, and all the imaginative men in the world could never invent, if all their wits were boiled into one, anything so curious and so ridiculous as the lobster.”

Charles Kingsley (1819-1875)

 

    "There was an Old Man of Blackheath,
    Whose head was adorned with a wreath
    Of lobsters and spice,
         pickled onions and mice,
    That uncommon Old Man of Blackheath."

Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks  (1812-1888)

 

“A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster, salad and champagne. The only true feminine and becoming viands.”

Lord Byron (1788-1824)

 

    “My temples throb, my pulses boil,
    I'm sick of song, and ode, and ballad--
    So, Thyrsis, take the midnight oil,
    And pour it on a lobster salad.”

Thomas Hood (1799-1845)

 

“Monkfish is called the poor man's lobster. As long as people never see what it looks like whole, they love it.”

Werner Auer
Executive chef, Hyatt Regency Hotel, Houston

 

Cookery is like matrimony. Two things served together should match. Clear should go with clear, thick with thick, hard with hard, and soft with soft. I have known people to mix grated lobster with birds' nests, and mint with chicken or pork!”

Yuan Mei, Chinese gastronome (18th century ???)
