Canapés à la Rector
Halibut au Lit
Saddle of Mutton
Fried Potato Balls
Rolled Nut Wafers
In 1914 October 14 was a Wednesday.
I’m guessing Consommé Julienne is Julienne Soup with consommé instead of stock.
Rector’s was a restaurant on Broadway in Manhattan, very famous in the nineteen-teens. Presumably they made canapés like this.
Despite how fancy French Peas sounds, it’s just canned peas reheated in butter. Unless they meant Peas à la Francaise.
The recipe for Cadillac Coupe vexes me. I can’t find it anywhere and it’s not obvious what it is, other than a dessert served in a coupe glass. Searching for “cadillac coupe” on-line is not helpful

One thought on “October 14, Formal Dinner”
As an Anglican priest, I find it amusing that the dish Canape a la rector is made with stale bread.
