Writer Quotes

“Some writers take to drink, others take to audiences.”

James Thurber (1894-1961)
American writer and cartoonist.


“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”

Laurie Colwin


“Some writers say the leaves [cilantro] are used for seasoning, but this statement seems odd, as all the green parts of the plant exhale a very strong odor of the wood-bug, whence the Greek name of the plant.”

Vilmorin-Andrieux, ‘The Vegetable Garden’ (1885)


“As if a cookbook had anything to do with writing.”

Alice B. Toklas, American writer (1877-1967)
