Italian Cuisine A Trip To The Island of Sardinia

Famous quotes containing the words island, italian, cuisine and/or trip:

    He is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Semantically, taste is rich and confusing, its etymology as odd and interesting as that of “style.” But while style—deriving from the stylus or pointed rod which Roman scribes used to make marks on wax tablets—suggests activity, taste is more passive.... Etymologically, the word we use derives from the Old French, meaning touch or feel, a sense that is preserved in the current Italian word for a keyboard, tastiera.
    Stephen Bayley, British historian, art critic. “Taste: The Story of an Idea,” Taste: The Secret Meaning of Things, Random House (1991)

    Thank God for the passing of the discomforts and vile cuisine of the age of chivalry!
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    A trip to the moon on gossamer wings.
    Cole Porter (1893–1964)
