As the old saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and so it should be no wonder that the cartoonists of yesteryear spent plenty of charcoal and ink to make us laugh at our culinary habits. Glutons were not spared from critique and drinking was also fair game. While tea figured in the cartoonist’s assortment, alcoholic beverages figured in them more often. We can only imagine the inspiration for the caricature of this lady’s gentile indulgence. Food and drink played an important role in everyday life as well as socializing and entertaining and that is evident in these funny troves. Have a trip down a culinary memory lane with these classic cartoons on food and drink. Just remember that everything is best in moderation!
