I found this most interesting: "There is a tooth in the upper jaw, called by some the sweeet tooth, very full of jelly..." I wonder if this has any connection to the term "having a sweet tooth" meaning to desire sugary foods? And I don't understand how a calf's tooth could be sweet with jelly unless there's a high fat content in the roots of the tooth???
"It is highly necessary that all who preside at the head of a table should be acquainted with all these particular delicacies..."How times have changed.
