Antonin Carême (Marie-Antoine Carême) (1783-1833)
"You may feel that you have eaten too much...But this pastry is like feathers - it is like snow. It is in fact good for you, a digestive!"
M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
"I recollected the thoughtless saying of a great princess, who, on being informed that the country people had no bread, replied, 'Then let them eat pastry!'"
Jean Jacques Rousseau, ‘Confessions’
“In the centre of a spacious table rose a pastry as large as a church, flanked on the north by a quarter of cold veal, on the south by an enormous ham, on the east by a monumental pile of butter, and on the west by an enormous dish of artichokes, with a hot sauce.”
Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
