Commonplace: Richard C. Morais, the Hundred-Foot Journey

“But more than that, I liked the fellow. Le Comte de Nancy was a surly curmudgeon, that is true, but he was also very decent, to anyone who gave him a chance, and really quite amusing. When, for example, one of my junior staff had the temerity to ask the count if he had room for dessert, he looked at the fellow as if he were a dolt before replying, ‘My dear man, a gourmand is a gentleman with the talent and fortitude to continue eating even when he is not hungry.'”
