  1. Apparently from Physiologie du Gout, ou Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante, 1826 according to this link:

    Good luck with that paper!

      Bartlett's confirms that, though it gives the publication date as 1825. And the author's full name is (was) Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. Hyphenated last name, not first name Brillat.

    2. Perfect, thank you kindly!
