International Wine & Food Society Journal, December 2010, p 23
This is one of several articles published in the journal of the International Wine & Food Society described on the 'Society 2' page on the horizontal navigation bar above. It is not a journal in the academic sense with papers with foot-notes/references/bibliographies at the end of each.
You may need to increase the size of the text by using the size button in the lower right corner of your screen if it exists. Another way of making changes is to use the 'Control' and the 'plus' or 'minus' keys.
People mentioned in this and previous articles are included on "The Royal Table" page in the side panel. Some readers may like to open another tab with the table on it to enable flitting between the two papers. Here is the table.
"Chicken in Every Pot" is a quotation that is perhaps one of the most misassigned in American political history. Variously attributed to each of four presidents serving between 1920 and 1936, it is most often associated with Herbert Hoover. In fact, the phrase has its origins in seventeenth century France; Henry IV reputedly wished that each of his peasants would enjoy "a chicken in his pot every Sunday." Although Hoover never uttered the phrase, the Republican Party did use it in a 1928 campaign advertisement touting a period of "Republican prosperity" that had provided a "chicken in every pot. And a car in every backyard, to boot."
