    • 1947, Kitaōji Rosanjin, お米の話:
      それでは料理人 (りょうりにん)としての資格 (しかく)はゼロに (ひと)しいといわれても、 (かれ)らは一向 (いっこう)頓着 (とんちゃく)しない。
      Sore de wa ryōrinin toshite no shikaku wa zero ni hitoshii to iwarete mo, karera wa ikkō ni tonchaku shinai.
      So even though people say their qualifications as chefs are practically nil, it doesn't concern them at all.
