Connoisseur Quotes


“CONNOISSEUR, n. A specialist who knows everything about something and nothing about anything else. An old wine-bibber having been smashed in a railway collision, some wine was poured on his lips to revive him. 'Pauillac, 1873,' he murmured and died.”

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)

 

“A connoisseur of gastronomy was congratulated on his appointment as a director of indirect contributions at Perigues: and, above all, in the pleasure there would be in living in the midst of good cheer, in the country of truffles, partridges, gruffled turkeys, and so forth. ‘Alas!’ replied with a sigh the sad gastronomer, ‘can one really live at all in a country where there is no fresh sea-fish?’"

Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin,
‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)
