Panettone for Christmas
I was reading a glossy brochure (with mostly pictures) of genuine Panettone (cake).
It is becoming traditional (around the world) to enjoy an Italian Panettone at Christmas rather than a heavier English style rich fruit cake.
I noticed that the brochure had a quote from Oscar Wilde.
It read …
In Italian: Avere buon gusto è facile: basta scegliere il meglio di tutto...
and then in English …
Having good taste is easy: simply choose the best of everything.
A great quote to use for advertising anything of purported quality!
I was curious as to why the Italians would quote from Oscar Wilde.
Surely there were Italian philosophers that could have been selected.Then again, who on earth can better Oscar Wilde?
