Food Ecstasy Quotes


“Ecstasy is a glass of tea and a piece of sugar in the mouth.”

Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837)

 

“Some dishes are of such indisputable excellence that their appearance alone is capable of arousing a level-headed man's degustatory powers. All those who, when presented with such a dish, show neither the rush of desire, nor the radiance of ecstasy, may justly be deemed unworthy of the honors of the sitting, and its related delights.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Meditation XIII in the 'Physiologie du gout'

 

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)

 

Describing a Sundae "...I shall remember that sundae all my life.  In a sumptuous confectioner's shop, light, airy, full of fragrance, we were served with a mountain of coffee ice cream, sprinkled with cream and scattered with walnuts, honey, peanuts, and various fruits.  When I carried the first spoonful to my mouth...my taste buds experienced a violent ecstasy.  A whole opera of sensation rolled off my tongue..."

Henri Troyat (French writer, biographer)
‘La Case de l'oncle Sam’
