Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755 & ndash; 1826) has been credited with founding the genre of the gastronomic essay, together with Grimod. A French lawyer and politician, Brillat-Savarin believed that all food, no matter how simple, should be prepared and consumed with great artistry.

5 editions published between 1854 and 2006 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Perhaps the most influential food writer of his day, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin & rsquo;s gastronomic essays are founding documents in the food-writing genre. This great classic of gastronomy is a witty and authoritative compendium on the art of dining, and it has never been out of print since first publication in 1825. The philosophy of Epicurus stands behind every page, and the simplest meal satisfied Brillat-Savarin, as long as it was executed with artistry. The sometimes wordy text is filled with aphorisms and axioms, and it has been endlessly analyzed and quoted. In a series of meditations that have the rhythm of an age of leisured reading and the confident pursuit of educated pleasures. Brillant-Savarin expounds on the delights of eating, which he considers a science, with witty anecdotes and observations such as: & ldquo;Those persons who suffer from indigestion, or who become drunk, are utterly ignorant of the true principles of eating and drinking. & rdquo; & ldquo;A dessert without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye. & rdquo; & ldquo;Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are. & rdquo; & ldquo;The pleasure of the table belongs to all ages, to all conditions, to all countries, and to all eras; it mingles with all other pleasures, and remains at last to console us for their departure. & rdquo; This edition of The Physiology of Taste was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes
