“Tell me what you eat and I shall tell you what you are.” Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Any serious food lover would benefit with reading Brillat-Savarin’s 19th century masterpiece, The Physiology of Taste. The New Yorker once called it the “most civilized cookbook ever written. “In it, Brillat-Savarin offers reflections and amusing anecdotes on anything and everything having to do with food.  Brilliantly translated from French into English by M.F. K. Fisher—one of our own beloved food writers—it discusses the joys of the table in a timeless, humorous way.

Don’t you just wonder what Brillat-Savarin would say about someone who dined on these delicious looking mini Saint-Honorés pastries?
