“Quel est le gourmand assez dépravé pour préférer une beauté maigre et chétive à ces énormes et succulents aloyaux de Limoges ? [...] Pour un vrai gourmand, il n’est pas d’oeil bleu, de dents blanches et de lèvres roses qui vaillent une truffe noire...” The second part is the history of the “trou normand.” (Oberlé, 290).
