Quote of the Week 12/12/11

12 Dec

Waking up this morning was quite difficult thanks to the amazing time I had at the Aquarium Christmas Party last night (perhaps I had too much fun). It was also hard waking up, knowing that the end of my time at the aquarium is nigh. It’s sad really, because I feel like I just started to connect with the people I work with. We’d only just begun! Tomorrow night is my dinner party with the people I like from work (aka not Tiffany). I’ll be up late tonight slaving away over my lasagna. This whole situation is bittersweet. Therefore, today’s food quote is bittersweet as well. It comes from the French gastronome Anthelme Brillat-Savarin’s great aunt Pierette.

“I feel the end approaching. Quick, bring me my dessert, coffee and liqueur.”

–Anthelme Brillat-Savarin’s great aunt Pierette

Couldn't find a picture of Great Aunt Pierette, so just picture Brillat-Savarin with a wig on.... Oh wait. He already has a wig on. Perfect.

    From the London Telegraph obituaries: “The Reverend Canon Brian Leo Dominic Frederic Titus Brindley died surrounded by a dozen of his closest friends, celebrating his 70th birthday at a seven-course dinner at the Athenaeum; he suffered a heart attack between the dressed crab and the beouf en croute.” Not too shabby.
