“I cannot protest enough against the custom so general in the United States to give to the table only the necessary time and to eat like a locomotive taking water, by doing which you expose yourself to the various stomach diseases which make so rapidly the fortune of the doctors and druggists.”
‘La Cuisine Française: French Cooking for Every Home Adapted to American Requirements’
by François Tanty (1893)
“Some people immediately descend on the dishes the moment they have been set down. Wolves do that.”
Desiderius Erasmus (1466? - 1536)
“Work before eating, rest after eating. Eat not ravenously, filling the mouth gulp after gulp without breathing space.”
“Intellectual men who quickly wolf down whatever nourishment is necessary for their bodies with a kind of disdain, may be very rational and have a noble intelligence, but they are not men of taste."
Sainte-Beuve, Charles Augustin (1804-1869)
