Quality of Food Quotes

“It seems odd, don't you think, that the quality of the food should vary inversely with the brightness of the lighting.”

Douglas Adams, English writer, humorist(1952-2001)


“The quality of food is in inverse proportion to the altitude of the dining room, with airplanes the extreme example."

Bryan Miller (NY Times Restaurant Critic)


“I had an excellent repast -- the best repast possible -- which consisted simply of boiled eggs and bread and butter. It was the quality of these simple ingredients that made the occasion memorable. The eggs were so good that I am ashamed to say how many of them I consumed ....It might seem that an egg which has succeeded in being fresh has done all that can be reasonably expected of it.”

Henry James


“The benevolence of wrapping the partridge in a vine leaf brings out its quality, just as the barrel of Diogenes brought forth the qualities of the great thinker.”

Des Essarts, French actor in Comedie-Francaise (1740-1793)
‘Larousse Gastronomique’ (1961)
