today i stumble across some forgotten, preliminary notes for an Archaic Food Words post, and so, in deference to the paucity of detail in the original, i reproduce them here:
under the cryptic, what i can assume to be a note-to-self, “Tell someone about QUAG” we have:
obligurate (v.) “prob. to spend time feasting,” “to spend time in belly-cheere”
petecure (n.) modest cooking, cooking on a small scale (contrasted w/ epicure)
the only comment i can offer is despite my initial excitement about so delicate and intentional a term of opposition to epicure, it quickly occurred to me that it was unlikely, given that ‘epicure‘ is derived the man, or at least the followers of the man, Epikouros.
