Such and Such Exquisite Sauces

"... a third is solicitous about his diet, he must have such and such exquisite sauces, meat so dressed, so far fetched, birds from strange countries, so cooked, &c. something to provoke thirst, something anon to quench his thirst. Thus he redeems his appetite with extraordinary charge to his purse, is seldom pleased with any meal, whilst a trivial stomack useth all with delight, and is never offended." It's like Robert Burton knows me! I'm the one with the trivial stomack. Though in my case it's movies, not food. But also food. THE ANATOMY OF MELANCHOLY!
