QUOTE BY GUNDEL ON MUSIC AND GASTRONOMY

Here is a quote from Gundel's Hungarian Cookbook:

The modern trend in music is the creation of cacophony, random mixture and the dissolving of sounds, the emphasis of rhythm over melody ... the search for exotic effects. Gastronomy as a form of art is searching for harmony in both the preparation of dishes and the selection of menus ... and in this coincides with musical trends only in that is searches for novelty. (Károly Gundel, 1934, page 88, ISBN 963 13 5286 2.)
