Preparing Food Quotes

"If the divine creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony."
Fernand Point (1897-1955)


“Many so-called aphrodisiac recipes are basically wholesome ingredients prepared in a tasty way. The receptivity to romance probably comes from the general sense of relaxation and well-being good food induces.”
Harry E. Wedeck


“He who receives his friends and gives no personal attention to the meal which is being prepared for them, is not worthy of having friends.”
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)


“Ham: 40 days in salt, 40 days hanging, in 40 days eaten.”
Joseph Delteil (1894-1978) French writer (‘La Cuisine paleolithique’, 1964) on how to prepare ham.


Perfectly prepared lobster are:
"not unlike hot curds, juicy and tender, and sweet as scorched honey from ocean depths."
Kenneth Robert, ‘Northwest Passage’


“The chef, or cook, proportions, assembles, and prepares various products of the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms, creating food for the epicure. The aesthetic pleasure induced by food can be so closely related to that produced by certain music and other arts, as to defy separation or separate identification.”
Merle Armitage, 'Fit For A King' (1937)


“First prepare the soup of your choice and pour it into a bowl. Then, take the bowl and quickly turn it upside down on the cookie tray. Lift the bowl ever so gently so that the soup retains the shape of the bowl. Gently is the key word here. Then, with the knife cut the soup down the middle into halves, then quarters, and gently reassemble the soup into a cube. Some of the soup will run off onto the cookie tray. Lift this soup up by the corners and fold slowly into a cylindrical soup staff. Place the packet in your purse or inside coat pocket, and pack off to work.”
Steve Martin
