quotable quote

Leo 'Mr Sydney' Schofields, food critic & festival director, Sydney Morning Herald, April 4, 2015:

"When I think of all the restaurants that I've known and eaten at in Sydney, they're now just memories: Primo's, Romano's, Prince's - dozens of restaurants that used to have a reputation - are long gone. And the only record that exists of the type of customer they had, and the sort of food that they served, and the quality, and where they fitted in the big scheme of Australia's development from a country that didn't care much about food to one that's almost obsessed about it now, is there in reviews."
