Our forefathers despised some dishes
which we regard as delicacies. In the
thirteenth century, for instance, al
though partridges abounded in Eng
land, they were eaten only by peas
ants and were never seen in the
houses of the nobles. Hares, too, were
despised by tho upper classes, and
even zimong the poor a strong preju
dice existed against them. On the
other hand, gourmets in the middle
egos ate herons, cranes, crows, storks,
tormorants, bitterns and other birds
which would revolt tho least dainty
feeder of today. London Chronicle.
