Famous quotes containing the word cook:

    The Indian remarked as before, “Must have hard wood to cook moose-meat,” as if that were a maxim, and proceeded to get it. My companion cooked some in California fashion, winding a long string of the meat round a stick and slowly turning it in his hand before the fire. It was very good. But the Indian, not approving of the mode, or because he was not allowed to cook it his own way, would not taste it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ‘Oh, I am a cook and a captain bold,
    And the mate of the Nancybrig,
    And a bos’sun tight, and a midshipmite,
    And the crew of the captain’s gig!”’
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    A cook they hadde with hem for the nones
    To boille the chiknes with the marybones.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
