Cuisine

I love to eat.

I love to eat junk food and I love to eat haute cuisine.

It’s probably a good thing that I don’t get to eat either all that often.

The word cuisine appeared first in English in 1786 in a poem by a woman named Hannah More. Her writing kind of makes my mouth water.

O’ th’ hogs of Epicurus‘ sty;
Yet all so foreign and so fine,
‘Twas easier to admire, than dine.
O! if the muse had power to tell
Each dish, no muse has power to spell
Great Goddess of the French Cuisine!

There you go, she’s told us: French cuisine.

In French cuisine means “kitchen”. But because food makes up such a big
part of French culture, the word is bigger than our English kitchen. It means cooking, and ways of cooking, and philosophies of cooking, and of course philosophies of eating.

The French might be seen as great cooks these days. But the etymology of the word cuisine reveals the dirty little secret that they learned it from someone else.

Before being French, cuisine was Italian. And in fact the French only got really turned on to cooking after Henry II of France married Catherine de’ Medici. When she moved up from Florence, she brought along her cookbook, or at least her retinue of cooks, and got the French juices flowing.

Having been an Italian word, it won’t surprise you that it had been a Latin word before that, and quite likely an Indo-European word as well, although even back in Latin the word had changed form. Our English words “kitchen” and “cook” came through Old English and its Germanic roots, but ultimately link up to cuisine etymologically.

When that poet Hannah More wasn’t thinking about food, she was thinking about literature.

She was born near Bristol in England and when she was 22 was pledged to be married to a guy. Somehow that didn’t work out, but the guy felt so bad that Hannah was given a lifelong allowance that would look like about 20,000 dollars a year today. This allowed her to dedicate herself to literature and every year she would travel to London to join the literary set there.

She had
a good heart as well as a good appetite and brought to the attention of the London Literati the poetry of a destitute milkmaid with a young family. A book by this diamond in the rough was published and made a bundle.


Hannah wanted to protect this unsophisticated country lass and so put the money in a trust account so that the milkmaid’s free drinking husband couldn’t get his mitts on it.

Unfortunately, this looked like theft to the unsophisticated country lass who refused to stay barefoot in the cuisine and took her complaints public to the great embarrassment of Hannah More.
