According to Petit Robert, Dictionnaire de la langue francaise, this is a Corsican saying: "La vengeance est un plat qui se mange froid"
Original message from Barry Popik:
>REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED COLD
> This is the title of an opinion in today's LOS ANGELES TIMES, 12 September 2001, pg. B-9. It's also the slogan of a new movie, DINNER RUSH (www.DinnerRush.com).
> It's not in my Stevenson book of quotations. It goes back to about 1986 on the Dow Jones database, where it was cited as an old Sicilian proverb.
