Food & Genius Quotes

“Taste is the feminine of genius.”

Edward FitzGerald, English writer (1809-1883)


    “Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain,
    With grammar, and nonsense, and learning;
    Good liquor, I stoutly maintain,
    Gives genius better discerning.”

    Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774) English author and eccentric.


“You cannot instruct people by a book how to entertain..... Success in entertaining is accomplished by magnetism and tact, which combined constitute social genius.”

Ward McAllister
'Society As I Have Found It' (1890)


“A host is like a general: it takes a mishap to reveal his genius.”

Horace, Roman lyric poet (65 -8 B.C.)


“Light, refined, learned and noble, harmonious and orderly, clear and logical, the cooking of France is, in some strange manner, intimately linked to the genius of her greatest men.”

Rouff (Marcel) [1887-1936]
French journalist and writer


“We ask [the chef] for a novelty, and his great genius suggests, under pressure, 'mousse aux jambon' [Ham Mousse], which is attractive to the eye, and if well made, at once establishes the reputation of the artist, satisfies the guests...and allays their fears for their dinner.”

Ward McAllister, ‘Society As I Have Found It’
