Simón de Swaan, Simon Says, The Rambling Epicureby Simón de Swaan

Food without wine is a corpse; wine without food is a ghost; united and well mitched they are as body and soul, living partners. —-Andre Simon

André Louis Simon (1877 – 1970) was the charismatic leader of the English wine trade for almost the entire first half of the 20th century, and the grand old man of literate connoisseurship for a further 20 years. In 66 years of authorship, he wrote 104 books. For 33 years, he was one of London’s leading champagne shippers; for another 33 years active president of the Wine & Food Society. Although he lived in England from the age of 25, he always remained a French citizen. He was both Officier de la Légion d’Honneur and holder of the Order of the British Empire.
