Maurice Edmond Saillant (1872-1956), better known by his nickname "Curnonsky" was the most celebrated writer on gastronomy in France in the 20th Century. He is considered as the inventor of gastronomic motor-tourism, popularized by Michelin. Called the Prince-elect of gastronomy (Prince-élu de la Gastronomie) or of gastronomes, he had in fact been duly elected in a poll of 3,000 chefs held by Paris-Soir in 1927. "La cuisine, c'est quand les choses ont le goût de ce qu'elles sont", Good cooking is when things taste of what they are.
