According to Swift: "I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy Child well Nursed is at a year Old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome Food, whether Stewed, Roasted, Baked, or Boyled, and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a Fricasie, or Ragoust."
At Snopes, we have eaten many children cooked in many ways and have found out that a Fricasie is certainly not the equal to Roasting or Baking.

Excellent! Thanks for the reposting Snopes fact check of Jonathan Swift.
