Food and Foreigners Quotes

“Foreigners cannot enjoy our food, I suppose, any more than we can enjoy theirs. It is not strange; for tastes are made, not born. I might glorify my bill of fare until I was tired; but after all, the Scotchman would shake his head and say, 'Where's your haggis?' and the Fijan would sigh and say, 'Where's your missionary?'”

Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (1835-1910)


“The only cooks in the civilized world are French cooks. . . . Other nations understand food in general; the French alone understand cooking, because all their qualities - promptitude, decision, tact - are employed in the art. No foreigner can make a good white sauce.”

Roqueplan (born Louis Victor Nestor Rocoplan)
French journalist and theater administrator
'La Vie parisienne' (1853)
