“The fennel is beyond every other vegetable, delicious. It greatly resembles in appearance the largest size celery, perfectly white, and there is no vegetable equals it is flavour. It is eaten at dessert, crude, and with, or without dry salt, indeed I preferred it to every other vegetable, or to any fruit.”
(Quoted in Consuming Passions, Jonathan Green ed. 1985)
“There's fennel for you, and columbines; there's rue for you; and here's some for me; we may call it herb of grace o'Sundays.”
William Shakespeare, ‘Hamlet’ (1564-1616)
