“I would like to find a stew that will give me heartburn immediately, instead of at three o'clock in the morning.”
“This is not that, and that is certainly not this, and at the same time an oyster stew is not stewed, and although they are made of the same things and even cooked almost the same way, an oyster soup should never be called a stew, nor stew soup.”
M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
“Talk of joy: there may be things better than beef stew and baked potatoes and home-made bread -- there may be.”
David Grayson, ‘Adventures in Contentment’ (1907)
"There was an Old Man of Peru,
Who watched his wife making a stew;
But once by mistake,
in a stove she did bake,
That unfortunate Man of Peru."
Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks (1812-1888)
“Boeuf a la Bourguignonne (Beef in the Burgundy style): This is the stew of stews, an apotheosis of stew, which has nothing whatsoever to do with the watery, stringy mixture served up in British institutions. It's a rich, carefully cooked recipe which is served up on special occasions in French homes, and which appears without shame on the menus of high-class restaurants.”
Jane Grigson (1928-1990)
'The Mushroom Feast,' 1975
