Calvin Trillin, American writer (New Yorker magazine)


"Measure the girth of the chef and you can rate his restaurant."

French saying


"You ought to have seen Frédéric with his monocle, his greying whiskers, his calm demeanour, carving his plump quack-quack, trussed and already flamed, throwing it into the pan, preparing the sauce, salting and peppering like Claude Monet's paintings, with the seriousness of a judge and the precision of a mathematician, and opening up, with a sure hand, in advance, every perspective of taste."
Leon Daudet describing the preparation of pressed duck at the restaurant, La Tour d'Argent.
 

“Anybody can make you enjoy the first bite of a dish, but only a real chef can make you enjoy the last.”
Francois Minot
 

"I am the emperor of Germany, but you are the emperor of chefs."
Emperor William II of Germany, speaking to Georges-Auguste Escoffier

Marie Antonin Careme (1784-1833)
 

“They eat the dainty food of famous chefs with the same pleasure with which they devour gross peasant dishes, mostly composed of garlic and tomatoes, or fisherman's octopus and shrimps, fried in heavily scented olive oil on a little deserted beach.”
Luigi Barzini, ‘The Italians’ (1964)
 

“If he is thin, I will probably dine poorly. If he is both thin and sad, the only hope is in flight.”
Fernand Point, on the chef as critical indicator when sizing up unfamiliar restaurants.
