“Hark, villains! I will grind your bones to dust
And with your blood and it I'll make a paste,
And of the paste a coffin I will rear
And make two pasties of your shameful heads.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Where quail and pigeon, lark and leveret lay,
Like fossils of the rock, with golden yolks
Imbedded and injellied."
Alfred, Lord Tennyson, ‘Audley Court’ (1842)
“Fruits each in its season, are the cheapest, most elegant and wholesome dessert you can offer your family or friends, at luncheon or tea. Pastry and plum-pudding should be prohibited by law, from the beginning of June until the end of September.”
‘Breakfast, Luncheon and Tea’
Marion Harland [Mary Virginia Terhune] (1875)
“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!”
