"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."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
We all know Fannie Smith as Gamms. Nana Emma also prepared her chicken this way. Years ago, the women of the family fried several chickens and served them with mashed potatoes, gravy made from the drippings, and fresh garden vegetables like sweet corn, okra and tomatoes. The family gatherings were often 25-30 "cousins."
