This menu is almost identical to Family Dinners Menu No. XX in What to Have for Dinner. However, that one has soup instead of canapés and adds a salad and a sauce for the soufflé.

French Fruit Pudding, Wine Sauce

In 1914 February 17 was a Tuesday.

The French Fruit Pudding is attributed to Mrs. Carrie M. Dearborn. She was the principal of The Boston Cooking School when Fannie Farmer was a student. Miss Farmer became her assistance principal in 1889 and succeeded her as principal after Mrs. Dearborn’s death in 1891.  But what makes this fruit pudding French?
