Some bread quotes

Oh my god, can I be a geek sometimes. The other day at work I was brainstorming by myself–challenging, I know–and one way I do that is with online dictionaries and quote finders. I happened upon a selection of food quotes and grabbed a few about bread. Bread and chicken pot pie.

Here they are.

Proust had his madeleines; I am devastated by the scent of yeast bread rising. ~Bert Greene


There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie. ~Craig Claiborne


All sorrows are less with bread. ~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

[Breadbaking is] one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells… there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel, that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread. ~M.F.K. Fisher, The Art of Eating
