Gastronome Quotes

“The smell of roasting meat together with that of burning fruit wood and dried herbs, as voluptuous as incense in a church, is enough to turn anyone into a budding gastronome.”
Claudia Roden, food writer, ‘Picnic’ (1981)

 

"To order and conduct a dinner is given only to fine gastronomes, of delicate and cultivated tastes; an able host is as rare as a good cook."
Lucien Tendret (1825-1896) French lawyer

 

"If there are gastronomes by predestination, then there are also some by circumstance."
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)

 

"One only dines well at the homes of true gastronomes who feel all the nuances: the least puffiness spoils the loveliest of faces and attention to detail creates perfection."
Lucien Tendret (1825-1896) French lawyer

 

"To make people who have no appetite eat, to make the wit of those who have it sparkle, to enable those who want these qualities to find them -- this is the supreme science of a gastronome-host."
Lucien Tendret

 

"A true gastronome should always be ready to eat, just as a soldier should always be ready to fight."
Charles Pierre Monselet (1825-1888)
French journalist and author.

 

“The gastronome is at the same time inquisitive and timid; he explores faint-heartedly.  He spends half his time remembering past satisfactions and the other half skeptically calculating future possibilities.”
J.F. Revel in 'Un festin en paroles'

 

“Cannibal: a gastronome of the old school.”
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)
