Today's word is quiddity again read in the New York Times Book Review.
It has two definitions and the second definition fits the context in which I read it.
quiddity noun 1 the essential quality of a thing
2 a trifling distinction, quibble
from Middle Latin quidditas from Latin quid what, neuter of quis who
My sentence: Your quiddity about the sauce not being truly French cuisine didn't seem to hamper your enjoyment of it.
