Tomato Quotes

“Three tomatoes are walking down the street - a papa tomato, a mama tomato and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Papa tomato get angry, goes over to Baby tomato and squishes him.....and says 'Ketchup!’"
Uma Thurman in 'Pulp Fiction' (1994)

 

“The man who can't visualize a horse galloping on a tomato is an idiot.”
André Breton, French writer. (1896-1966)



"A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins."
Laurie Colwin, ‘Home Cooking’

 

"It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato."
Lewis Grizzard

 

“Of the tomato or love apple, I know very little. It is chiefly employed as a sauce or condiment. No one, it is believed, regards it as very nutritious; and it belongs, like the mushroom and the potatoe, to a family of plants, some of the individuals of which are extremely poisonous. Some persons are even injured, more or less, by the acid of the tomato.”
‘The Young House-keeper’ by William Andrus Alcott (1846)

 

“A number of rare or newly experienced foods have been claimed to be aphrodisiacs. At one time this quality was even ascribed to the tomato. Reflect on that when you are next preparing the family salad.”
Jane Grigson

 

“High-tech tomatoes. Mysterious milk. Supersquash. Are we supposed to eat this stuff? Or is it going to eat us?”
Annita Manning

 

“Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good.”
Alice May Brock (of Alice's Restaurant fame)

 

“A cooked tomato is like a cooked oyster: ruined.”
Andre Simon (1877-1970)
‘The Concise Encyclopedia of Gastronomy’

 

“A world devoid of tomato soup, tomato sauce, tomato ketchup and tomato paste is hard to visualize. Could the tin and processed food industries have got where they have without the benefit of the tomato compounds which colour, flavour, thicken and conceal so many deficiencies? How did the Italians eat spaghetti before the advent of the tomato? Was there such a thing as tomato-less Neapolitan pizza?”
Elizabeth David (1913-1992)
‘An Omelette and a Glass of Wine’, 1984

 

    “Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
    What would life be like without homegrown tomatoes
    Only two things that money can't buy
    That's true love and home grown tomatoes.”

    John Denver, 'Home Grown Tomatoes'
    (from a song written by Guy Clark)
