And all year after physicians may play.”
Old Welsh Rhyme??
“Eat leeks in tide and garlic in May, and all the year after physicians may play."
“I beseech you heartily, scurvy, lousy knave, at my desires, and my requests, and my petitions, to eat, look you, this leek: because, look you, you do not love it, nor your affections and your appetites and your disgestions doo's not agree with it, I would desire you to eat it....if you can mock a leek, you can eat a leek.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'King Henry V'
“If Leekes you like, but do their smell dis-like, Eat Onyons, and you shall not smell the Leeke; If you of Onyons would the scent expell, Eat Garlicke, that shall drowne the Onyons' smell.”
Dr. William Kitchiner, ‘The Cook's Oracle’
