In the early nineteenth century it is said that Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford complained of a ‘sinking feeling in the afternoon’, at the time it was common just to eat breakfast and supper, and so she began to snack on sandwiches and little cakes to curb her hunger.

Although renowned mainly for his paintings, Leonardo was skilled in many fields including sculpting, architecture, music, engineering, anatomy and geology.
