We usually think of Mark Twain as a great traveler and "the father of American literature". Besides travel and literature this renowned writer loved to eat. American food was his favourite. Here is a collection of some of his food quotes.
"Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside."
"Nothing helps scenery like bacon and eggs."
"When one has tasted watermelon he knows what the angels eat."
"Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody."
"Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education."
"New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin."
"The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not."
"There are no standards of taste in wine... Each man's own taste is the standard, and a majority vote cannot decide for him or in any slightest degree affect the supremacy of his own standard."
