 QUOTE
"The beautiful and the good are identical but the fleeting
impressions created by the work of a cook or a musician disperse
even as they are being experienced. Raphael's painting The
Transfiguration is immortal, but Carems's 'Ragout de truffes a
la parisienne' lasts while it is being eaten, just as roses
that last as long as their fragrance can be enjoyed."
Lucien Tendret (1825-1896)
French lawyer and gastronome; great-nephew of Brillat-Savarin

-----------------------------------------------------------------
 TRIVIA

mayonnaise, minced anchovies, chives, tarragon, parsley,
scallions, and garlic.
