In cooking, as in all the arts, simplicity is the sign of perfection.”   —   Curnonsky

(A fairly quick solve . . . except for the author’s name!  Although we have had at least one of his quotes before.  He was truly an original, and it looks like he truly enjoyed his life.  Santé!  Be well and do good, friends!)   —   YUR

In cooking, as in all the arts, simplicity is the sign of perfection.”   —   Curnonsky

(A fairly challenging quote from the Prince-Elect of Gastronomy!  This guy lived a full and rewarding life as a culinary writer.  Probably a little too full, as it’s reported that – later in life – he had grown so heavy that it took six friends to carry him to his favorite restaurants!  Also, they say he was trying to diet, and got faint, and fell out of his apartment window, to his death!  But making it to 84, while eating the best French food, and best French wine is pretty sweet.  We welcome him, Maurice Edmund Sailland – AKA Curnonsky, to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.  Bon appétit!)   —   YUR
