Creativity Food Quotes

“In the end, your creativity -- perhaps even your outrageousness -- will determine the final result.”

Bobby Flay, celebrity chef, restaurateur

 

“A first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting.”

Charles Wysocki's ‘Americana Cookbook’

 

“Some people like to paint pictures, or do gardening, or build a boat in the basement. Other people get a tremendous pleasure out of the kitchen, because cooking is just as creative and imaginative an activity as drawing, or wood carving, or music.”

Julia Child

 

“Prepared and fast foods have given us the time and freedom to see cooking as an art form - a form of creative expression.”

Jeff Smith 'The Frugal Gourmet Keeps the Feast' (1995)

 

"We did not immediately come up with béarnaise, Bercy, and poivrade sauces. It took more than a single attempt to discover reduced cream, marinade, and forcemeat. We did not straightaway invent barding fat, the touch of garlic, and the thin slice of truffle under the skin.... While genius is spontaneous, its manifestations nevertheless require the passage of time before glorious perfection is achieved. This is particularly true in the area of food and drink.... Magical dishes, magical words: a great cook is, when all is said and done, a great poet. . . . For was it not a visit from the Muses that inspired the person who first had the idea of marrying rice and chicken, grape and thrush, potatoes and entrecôte, Parmesan and pasta, aubergine (eggplant) and tomato, Chambertin and cockerel, liqueur brandy and woodcock, onion and tripe?"

'Cinquante Ans a Table' (1953)
Marcel Étiennegrancher (1897-1976)
