Pretentious Meal Quotes

"The meal was pretentious -- a kind of beetroot soup with greasy croutons; pork underdone with loud vulgar cabbage, potato croquettes, tinned peas in tiny jam-tart cases, watery gooseberry sauce; trifle made with a resinous wine, so jammy that all my teeth lit up at once."

Anthony Burgess, English novelist (1917-1993)


“Do not be afraid of simplicity. If you have a cold chicken for supper, why cover it with a tasteless white sauce which makes it look like a pretentious dish on the buffet table at some fancy dress ball?”

Marcel Boulestin, chef, food writer (1878-1943)
‘Simple French Cooking for English Homes’ (1923)
