Food Ordeal Quotes


“The half-hour before dinner has always been considered as the great ordeal through which the mistress, in giving a dinner-party, will either pass with flying colours, or lose many of her laurels.”

Isabella Beeton (1836-1865)
‘The Book of Household Management’ (1861)
 

 

“The cold truth is that family dinners are more often than not an ordeal of nervous indigestion, preceded by hidden resentment and ennui and accompanied by psychosomatic jitters.”

M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
