Long Life Food Quotes

"Eat butter first, and eat it last, and live till a hundred years be past."

Old Dutch proverb


“The dishes of the present day are very light, and they have a particular delicacy and perfume. The secret has been discovered of enabling us to eat more and to eat better, as also to digest more rapidly....The new cookery is conductive to health, to good temper, and to long life....Who could enumerate all the dishes of the new cuisine? It is an absolutely new idiom. I have tasted viands prepared in so many ways and fashioned with such art that I could not imagine what they were.”

Louis Sebastien Mercier
‘Tableau de Paris’, 1781-82
