“A Dinner Which Ends Without Cheese is like a Beautiful Woman With Only One Eye”

Posted on

A Christmas present I am quite excited to immerse myself in…

An 1825 Masterpiece

Aphorisms of the professor include:

the famous “Tell me what you eat and I shall tell you what you are”

“The discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the discovery of a star”

“To invite people to dine with us is to make ourselves responsible for their well-being for as long as they are under our roofs”

And less favourably:

“Men who stuff themselves and grow tipsy know neither how to eat nor how to drink”

Can’t wait to see what other interesting tidbits Brillat-Savarin comes up with.

To be continued…
