exercises in being according to an existential hedonist

Honoré de Balzac

  • Born – 20. Mai 1799 in Tours, France as Honoré Balzac
  • Died – 18. August 1850 in Paris, France (excessive amounts of coffee?)

About this drinker is known that he loved to drink. He disappeared for days in order to work and for this he drank lots of coffee (sometimes up to sixty cups daily), as well as eggs and fruits. When it was time for a pause he ate so much that his eating became historical for culinary annals. This is attributed to a single visit at a restaurant during which he ate one hundred oysters, a dozen cutlets, one duck and several desserts, before drinking various liqueurs.
