Alexia’s London: Supper July 13, 1876 (Behind the Magic)

Supper for Today, 1876, in a London Townhouse

  • Celery Soup – made with beef stock and cream
  • Minced Veal – simmer cubed veal in cream, lemon, lemon peal, salt, and white pepper
  • Corner vegetables – artichokes, asparagus, salsafy (salsify is the modern spelling – apparently its roots taste like oyster)
  • Soufflé Pudding – sort of like custard fool, made in a mold edged with dried cherry & candied citron (pudding rises to 4x its original height!) serve with brandy sauce
