Pigeon Food Quotes


Kill no more pigeons than you can eat.”

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
 

 

“The toes of the pigeons for roasting should be cut off.”

Eliza Acton
‘Modern Cookery for Private Families’ (1845)
 

 

“About the only birds in New England worth cooking, are the pigeon and partridge....Any one who kills a robin to eat, ought to have it hung round his neck as the albatross was around the 'Ancient Mariner.'”

Sarah Josepha Hale
'The Good Housekeeper' (1839)
 

 

“France has found a unique way of controlling its unwanted critter population. They have done this by giving unwanted animals like snails, pigeons, and frogs fancy names, thus transforming common backyard pests into expensive delicacies. These are then served to gullible tourists, who will eat anything they can't pronounce.”

Chris Harris, 'Quotable Feast' by Sarah E. Parvis (2001)
