Simon Says: Daily Food Quote, August 2, 2012
A chief maxim in dining with comfort is to have what you want when you want it.–Thomas Walker, The Original, 1835
Thomas Walker was a police magistrate and author. On 20 May 1835 he began publishing The Original, and continued it weekly until the following 2 Dec. It is a collection of his thoughts on many subjects, intended to raise “the national tone in whatever concerns us socially or individually,” but his admirable papers on health and gastronomy form the chief attraction of the work.
