Inspiring Cooking Quotes

 

A human being is primarily a bag for putting food into; the other functions and faculties may be more godlike, but in point of time they come afterwards. A man dies and is buried, and all his words and actions are forgotten, but the food he has eaten lives after him in the sound or rotten bones of his children. I think it could be plausibly argued that changes of diet are more important than changes of dynasty or even of religion….Yet it is curious how seldom the all-importance of food is recognized. You see statues everywhere to politicians, poets, bishops, but none to cooks or bacon-curers or market gardeners.
 George Orwell

Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
Harriet Van Horne

 

Cookery has become a noble art, a noble science; cooks are gentlemen.
Robert Burton

Enchant, stay beautiful and graceful, but do this, eat well. Bring the same consideration to the preparation of your food as you devote to your appearance. Let your dinner be a poem, like your dress.
~ Charles Pierre Monselet – a 19th century French author

Make [food] simple and let things taste of what they are.
~ Curnonsky – dubbed the Prince of Gastronomy, was the most celebrated writer on gastronomy in France in the 20th century

Food is not about impressing people. It’s about making them feel comfortable.
~ Ina Garten – an American author, host of the Food Network program Barefoot Contessa, and former White House nuclear policy analyst

Cooking is an art and patience a virtue… Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing – love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist – not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine taste of happiness and love.
~ Keith Floyd – a British chef and television personality who hosted numerous cooking shows for the BBC
