Food Philosophy Quotes and Food Philosophers Quotes


“A philosopher is a person who doesn't care which side his bread is buttered on; he knows he eats both sides anyway.”
Joyce Brothers, psychologist, advice columnist

 

“According to the saying of an ancient philosopher, one should eat to live, and not live to eat.”
Moliere, French playwright (1622-1673) ‘L'Avare’

 

“All are lunatics, but he who can analyse his delusions is called a philosopher.”
Ambrose Bierce, American writer & journalist strongly influenced by Poe (1842-1914)

 

“Thou hadst better eat salt with the Philosophers of Greece, than sugar with the Courtiers of Italy.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ‘Poor Richard's Almanac’

 

"But, lady, as women, what wisdom may be ours if not the philosophies of the kitchen? Lupercio Leonardo spoke well when he said: 'how well one may philosophize when preparing dinner.' And I often say, when observing these trivial details: had Aristotle prepared vituals [sic], he would have written more."
Mexican nun, 17th century

 

“Roast Beef, Medium, is not only a food. It is a philosophy. Seated at Life's Dining Table, with the menu of Morals before you, your eye wanders a bit over the entrees, the hors d'oeuvres, and the things a la, though you know that Roast Beef, Medium, is safe and sane, and sure.”
Edna Ferber (1887-1968)  American writer

 

Cuisine is both an art and a science: it is an art when it strives to bring about the realization of the true and the beautiful, called le bon (the good) in the order of culinary ideas. As a science, it respects chemistry, physics and natural history. Its axioms are called aphorisms, its theorems recipes, and its philosophy gastronomy.”
Lucien Tendret (1825-1896)

 

“My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate—that's my philosophy.”
Thornton Wilder
