Lords Alcohol and Gormandize have quarrelled; each calls himself the greater; they will here each discuss their separate claims to greatness, and you, by vote, will be called upon to decide which is the greatest.


-Edwards, Charles, The New York hooroarer: a story of newspaper enterprise, containing visit to the infernal regions and return, published in 1893 by Humboldt Pub. Co, New York, page 44, Chapter IX, Pandemonium - Lord Alcohol's speech.

Gourmand
A gourmand is a person who takes great pleasure in food; a person given to excess in the consumption of food and drink; a greedy or ravenous eater. The word has different connotations from the similar word gourmet, which emphasises an individual with a highly refined discerning palate, but in practice the two terms are closely linked, as both imply the enjoyment of good food. An alternative and older usage of the word is to describe a person given to excess in the consumption of food and drink, synonymous with a "glutton" or a "trencherman". In this latter usage, there is a parallel concern among the French that their word for the appreciation of gourmet cuisine is historically included in the French Catholic list of the Seven Deadly Sins. With the evolution in the meaning of gourmand away from gluttony, towards the appreciation of good food, French culinary proponents are advocating that the Catholic Church update the infamous list to refer to "gloutonnerie" rather than "gourmandise." The Ligue des Gourmands was founded by Auguste Escoffier in 1912. The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were created by Edouard Cointreau in 1995.
