Edible idioms - What's your favorite?

Have you read The Food Section lately? I love it and just began receiving again their daily bite. Today's was a fun one for food geeks and word geeks both. I sorta live in the middle of that Venn Diagram. Foodie figures of speech: a world of edible idioms | Life and style | guardian.co.uk.

My favorite food idioms are:

  • Talk does not cook the rice.
  • If you're looking for a fish, don't climb a tree.

bowl of rice

And from Chile:

  • God gives bread to people with no teeth.
