Mushroom Quotes

"Life is too short to stuff a mushroom."
Shirley Conran (1932-?), ‘Superwoman’
 

"I confess, that nothing frightens me more than the appearance of mushrooms on the table, especially in a small provincial town."
Alexandre Dumas, early 19th century
 

“Strange that mankind should ever have used the mushroom. All the various species of this substance are of a leathery consistence, and contain but little nutriment. The condiments or seasonings which are added are what are chiefly prized. Without these, we should almost as soon eat saw dust as mushrooms.”
‘The Young House-keeper’
by William Andrus Alcott (1846)

 

"Not being ambitious of martyrdom, even in the cause of gastronomical enterprise, especially if the instrument is to be a contemptible, rank-smelling fungus, I never eat or cook mushrooms."
Marion Harland (1873) ‘Common Sense in the Household: A Manual of Practical Housewifery’
 

"You may make, with common white note-paper, as many little square boxes as you have mushrooms to broil; grease them with butter, put the mushrooms in, set them on the gridiron, and on a moderate fire, and serve them in the boxes when done."
Pierre Blot, ‘Handbook of Practical Cookery’ (1867)
 

"Nature alone is antique and the oldest art a mushroom."
Thomas Carlyle
 

“I confess that my stomach does not take to this style of cooking.  I cannot accept calves sweetbreads swimming in a salty sauce, nor can I eat mince consisting of turkey, hare, and rabbit, which they try to persuade me comes from a single animal . . . . As for the cooks, I really cannot be expected to put up with this ham essence, nor the excessive quantity of morels and other mushrooms, pepper, and nutmeg with which they disguise perfectly good food.”
Voltaire (1694-1778)
[Pen name of Francois Marie Arouet]

 

“Whatever dressing one gives to mushrooms, to whatever sauces our Apiciuses put them, they are not really good but to be sent back to the dungheap where they are born.”
Denis Diderot (1713-1784)
‘L'Encyclopedie’ (1751-1772)
