Look inside the book:
They refuse to recognise that there is no less art in eating well than in painting well or writing well, and if their choice lay between swallowing a bun with a cup of tea in an aërated bread shop, and missing the latest picture show or doing without a new book, they would not hesitate; to the stodgy bun they would condemn themselves, though that way madness lies. ...Or, thin the slices, make them the covering for ham and tongue, or—if you be greatly favoured—for 35 sardines and anchovies; and then memory will spread for you the banquet in the pleasant pastures that border the Cam, the willows bowering you from the August sun with shade, your boat moored to the cool bank; and with Claret cup, poured, mayhap, into old college tankards, you quench your thirst, while lazily you listen to the distant plashing of oars and lowing of kine, and all life drifts into an idle dream.
About Elizabeth Robins Pennell, the Author:
9 The Delights of Delicate Eating was reprinted in 2000, and Pennell appears as one of the 'forgotten female aesthetes' that Shaeffer evaluates in her book of that title, one who 'aimed to recon?gure meals as high art, employing the language of aestheticism to turn eating into an act of intellectual appreciation'. ...She praised cycling in general, and the ease with which it enabled city dwellers to escape to the countryside, for its fresh air and views, and claimed that 'there is no more healthful or more stimulating form of exercise; there is no physical pleasure greater than that of being borne along, at a good pace, over a hard, smooth road by your own exertions'.
