Artistic Temperament Quotes

“A good cook is not necessarily a good woman with an even temper. Some allowance should be made for artistic temperament.”

X. Marcel Boulestin, chef, food writer (1878-1943)
‘Simple French Cooking for English Homes’ (1923)


Cooks are in some ways very much like actors; they must be fit and strong, since acting and cooking are two of the most exacting professions. They must be blessed - or cursed, whichever way you care to look at it - with what is called the artistic temperament, which means that if they are to act or cook at all well, it cannot be for duds or dummies.”

Andre Simon (1877-1970),
‘The Concise Encyclopedia of Gastronomy’ (1952)
