Society & Food Quotes


"Food to a large extent is what holds a society together and eating is closely linked to deep spiritual experiences."

'Consuming Passions: The Anthropology of Eating'
Peter Farb and George Armelagos

 

“In the social state to which we have come today, it is hard to imagine a nation which would live solely on bread and vegetables.”

Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)

 

"I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper, and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer."

Brendan Behan, Irish author (1923-1964)

 

“The economy of the kitchen is only a counterpart, in its simplicity or complication, its rudeness or luxury, of the economy of the State. The perfectibility of cookery indicates the perfectibility of society. The progress of cookery is the progress of civilisation.

Frederick W. Hackwood, ‘Good Cheer’ (1911)
