Clementine Paddleford

  • Chowder breathes reassurace. It steams consolation.

  • Night after summer night the supper dishes went unwashed while we loafed together on the porch watching fireflies seedstitch the dark with gold.

  • We all have hometown appetites. Every other person is a bundle of longing for the simplicities of good taste once enjoyed on the farm or in the hometown left behind.

    • Clementine Paddleford,
    • in The Saturday Evening Post ()

Clementine Paddleford, U.S. food writer

(1898 - 1967)
