Food quotes suitable for home decor?

We are considering painting a quote on the stair risers in our front hall. I found this and we both quite like it, but my husband recommended I check here and see if anyone has other food-related quotes that might work well. Any suggestions?

We live very simply but with all the essentials of life well understood and provided for: hot baths, cold champagne, new peas and old brandy.
-Winston Churchill

  1. a la the food channel George Bernard Shaw is often quoted as "There is no sincerer love than the love of food." .

    a la PBS, the more fun, entire quote "Oh, the tiger will love you. There is no sincerer love than the love of food."

    1. This was posted on my kitchen bulletin board for many years:

      "The discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the discovery of a new star."

      Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, Physiologie du Gout, 1825

      1. Your quote is perfect. One of my favorites however has always been: “Any time not spent drinking Port is a waste of time.” - Percy Croft

        1. After seeing Big Night over the weekend, I have to add this: "To eat good food is to be close to God."

            Also, "Sometimes spaghetti likes to be alone."..... that still cracks me up!

          2. Not exclusive to food, but living a good life in general (which of course includes good food!), but Ialways liked this one:

            "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."


            But I really like the one you already have too!!
