Modesty and Food Quotes

"I like a cook who smiles out loud when he tastes his own work. Let God worry about your modesty; I want to see your enthusiasm."

Robert Farrar Capon


Gourmets! serve the bird roasted, with pink feet, a strip of bacon to cover its modesty, the breast sprinkled with lemon drops.”

Charles Monselet, on partridges


“A modest garden contains, for those who know how to look and to wait, more instruction than a library.”

Henri Frederic Amiel
‘The Private Journal of Henri Frederic Amiel’
