“One of the delights of life is eating with friends, second to that is talking about eating. And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends.”

Laurie Colwin “Home Cooking”.

“You can’t just eat good food. You’ve got to talk about it too. And you’ve got to talk about it to somebody who understands that kind of food.”

Kurt Vonnegut “Jailbird”.

“If you are ever at a loss to support a flagging conversation, introduce the subject of eating.”

Leigh Hunt (1784 – 1859).

Or maybe we could just talk TO our food:

“I talked to a calzone for fifteen minutes last night before I realized it was just an introverted pizza. I wish all my acquaintances were so tasty.”

Jarod Kintz “This Book Has No Title”.

“I moan with pleasure.
“Did you just have a foodgasm?” he asks, wiping ricotta from his lips.
“Where have you been all my life?” I ask the beautiful panini.”

Stephanie Perkins “Anna and the French Kiss”.

Finally, surely there is something to be said for the advantages of NON-communication:

“Oh, the pleasure of eating my dinner alone.”

Charles Lamb.

Maybe Philip Larkin could have the last word on the non-communication, or at least inner communication, theme:

“Seriously, I think it is a grave fault in life that so much time is wasted in social matters, because it not only takes up time when you might be doing individual private things [like eating in solitude!], but it prevents you storing up the psychic energy that can then be released to create art or whatever it is. It’s terrible the way we scotch silence & solitude at every turn, quite suicidal. … It isn’t as if anything was gained by this social frivolity; It isn’t: it’s just a waste.”

Philip Larkin “Letters to Monica”.

Perhaps a totally silent meal might be an interesting idea to try at Oxford 2015!
