Coffee with vinegar and mustard, anyone?

Victor Hugo, … according to a description by Théophile Gautier, would mix together on the same plate a cutlet, beans in oil, a ham omelette, and Brie cheese, and would drink café au lait seasoned with a dash of vinegar and a spot of mustard.

R. B[runet], ‘La Cuisine régionale’, in Le Temps, 4 April 1940, quoted in Walter Benjamin, The Arcades Project.
