Quote of the Week 2/18/13

18 Feb

This week’s quote comes from a french lawyer who is known as being one of the first restaurant critics and food reviewers. He’s known for being “scathing and witty” in his reviews and even published a “Food Lover’s Almanac” that was pretty popular until a bunch of people got mad and accused him of accepting bribes in exchange for favorable reviews, forcing him to fake his own death and live out the rest of his days in a chateau outside of Paris. People apparently took food reviews very seriously back then.

“Life is so brief that we should not glance either too far backwards or forwards…therefore study how to fix our happiness in our glass and in our plate.”
– Grimod de la Reynière

 

Dude, look at that face. I can't stop laughing.
