Dan Washburn
“I had to pace my consumption cannily, because each time I finished what was in my bowl, someone would immediately fill it up with something else. “Eat more,” they would say. “Eat more pig’s ear!”
Dan Washburn, Unsavory Elements: Stories of Foreigners on the Loose in China

Honoré de Balzac
“No one was irritable; we have never known anyone to remain unhappy while digesting a good meal. We enjoy lingering in a becalmed state, a kind of midpoint between the reverie of a thinker and the contentment of a cud-chewing animal, a state that should be termed the physical melancholy of gastronomy.”
Honoré de Balzac, The Human Comedy: Selected Stories
