Brillat-Savarin sounds like one of those treaties that banned some type of warfare. Close: it’s named after Jean Brillat-Savarin, lawyer, politician and epicure. He was known for great taste, passionate food writing, and piquant aphorisms.

Such as: A dessert without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye. How true! But you should never look at a cheeseless desssert and say "its perfection is unutterably marred by the soulless expression of a dead glass orb."

Wonder how many one-eyed women at the table stiffened whenever he said that.

I like this: “"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. 'Much obliged', said he, pushing the plate aside, 'I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills’.”

And I am not accustomed to taking my fish stuffed with spackle and gummis, but taste is a personal thing.
