Digestive Gravity Food Quotes

“....grease is not gravy. How often I have wished, from the depths of a loathing stomach, that certain well-meaning house keepers - at whose boards I have sat as guest or boarder - who fry beafsteak in lard, and send ham to table swimming in fat; upon the surface of whose soups float spheroids of oil that encase the spoon with blubber, and coat the lips and tongue of the eater with flaky scales-that these dear souls who believe in 'old-fashioned cookery,' understood this simple law of digestive gravity!”

‘Breakfast, Luncheon and Tea’
Marion Harland [Mary Virginia Terhune] (1875)
