Feast of Words: Banquets and Table Talk in the Renaissanceby Michel Jeanneret
Our gastronomy is ill at ease: it oscillates between fast food and nouvelle ciusine, we compute the time it takes to eat a good meal and anxiously count calories. For the Victorians have passed on to us an austere morality and an instinctive mistrust of physical over-indulgence.
