The name given to the tight trousers worn by some Regency gentlemen, such as the notorious Beau Brummell and his ‘dandy’ followers, as they showed off their leg muscles.
Brockely in Sallad
Brockely is a pretty dish, by way of Sallad in the middle of the table. Boil it like asparagus, lay it in a dish, and beat up oil and vinegar, and a little salt. Garnish round with Stertion-buds. Or boil it, and have plain butter in a cup- Or farce French roles with it, and buttered eggs together for change- Or farce your roles with muscles done the same way as oysters, only no wine.
