Waiting Food Quotes

“I have always been punctual at the hour of dinner, for I know that all those whom I kept waiting at that provoking interval would employ those unpleasant moments to sum up my faults.”

Nicolas Boileau (-Despreaux) (1636-1711)


“Hot soup at table is very vulgar; it either leads to an unseemly mode of taking it, or keeps people waiting too long whilst it cools. Soup should be brought to table only moderately warm.”

Charles Day, ‘Hints on Etiquette’ (1844)


“The only time to eat diet food is while you are waiting for the steak to cook.”

Julia Child (1912-2004)
