“From time immemorial, soups and broths have been the worldwide medium for utilizing what we call the kitchen byproducts or as the French call them, the 'dessertes de la table' (leftovers), or 'les parties interieures de la bete', such as head, tail, lights, liver, knuckles and feet.”
Louis P. DeGouy, ‘The Soup Book’ (1949)
“Too many cooks may spoil the broth, but it only takes one to burn it.”
Madeleine Bingham, ‘The Bad Cook's Guide’
"There was an Old Man of the North,
Who fell into a basin of broth;
But a laudable cook,
fished him out with a hook,
Which saved that Old Man of the North."
Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks (1812-1888)
