Roast Stuffed Turkey, Giblet Gravy
Cranberry Jelly
Curled Celery
Mashed Potatoes

Orange Ice
Nut Caramel Cake
Toasted Crackers
Roquefort
Café Noir

In 1914 January 4 was a Sunday, presumably which is why the menu is rather elaborate.

I’m still looking for the recipe for the Nut Caramel Cake. If anyone has a lead, send it my way, please,

There should probably be more spacing between Toasted Crackers and Roquefort, as I believe they are two menu items and not cheese-flavored crackers.

This is our first appearance of Café Noir, merely the French way of saying “black coffee”. However, it will not be the last.
