Bouillabaisse Food Quotes


“Bouillabaisse, this golden soup, this incomparable golden soup which embodies and concentrates all the aromas of our shores and which permeates, like an ecstasy, the stomachs of astonished gastronomes. Bouillabaisse is one of those classic dishes whose glory has encircled the world, and the miracle consists of this: there are as many bouillabaisses as there are good chefs or cordon bleus. Each brings to his own version his special touch.”

Curnonsky (1872-1956)

 

"Bouillabaisse is only good because cooked by the French, who, if they cared to try, could produce an excellent and nutritious substitute out of cigar stumps and empty matchboxes."

Norman Douglas, British novelist (1868-1952)

 

"What will be the death of me are buillabaisses, food spiced with pimiento, shellfish, and a load of exquisite rubbish which I eat in disproportionate quantities."

Emile Zola, French writer (1840-1902)

 

“At that comfortable tavern on Pontchartrain we had a bouillabaisse than which a better was never eaten at Marseilles; and not the least headache in the morning, I give you my word; on the contrary, you only wake with a sweet refreshing thirst for claret and water.”

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)

 

    “This Bouillabaisse a noble dish is -
    A sort of soup or broth, or brew,
    Or hotchpotch of all sorts of fishes,
    That Greenwich never could outdo;
    Green herbs, red peppers, mussels, saffron,
    Soles, onions, garlic, roach, and dace;
    All these you eat at Terre's tavern,
    In that one dish of Bouillabaisse.”

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)
‘Ballad of Bouillabaisse’

 

“.....all the charming and beautiful things, from the Song of Songs, to bouillabaisse, and from the nine Beethoven symphonies to the Martini cocktail, have been given to humanity by men who, when the hour came, turned from tap water to something with color in it, and more in it than mere oxygen and hydrogen.”

H.L. Mencken (1880-1956), American editor and critic.
