Royal Meal V: Vegetables & Lamb

Esteemed Readers,

we go on our collection of 17th century recipes. So today in our menu there are:

Artichokes in White Sauce

Boil some small artichokes in slightly salted water. When they are ready, add some parsley, season with salt & black pepper, put them into the oven. Meanwhile make a sauce from an egg yolk, a drop of vinegar & some broth.

Asparagus with White Butter

Boil some asparagus in salted water. Make a sauce from butter, salt, vinegar & nutmeg or black pepper, stirring it constantly. Pout it on the asparagus when they are ready to be served. This sauce also fits for asparagus salad.

Lamb Carbonnade 

Slice a big piece of lamb, brown it in a pan. Then cook in broth, seasoned with salt, pepper, cloves, some herbs , chestnuts & champignons. Brown it in flour in the pan, garnish with champignons & fried bread. Serve with capers & lemon juice. 

Bon Appétit! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Vive le Roy!

Maria KethuProfumo

PS. The original recipes you may find in books of Esteemed le Sieur Massailot.

    Love our lamb and great to find new ways with it. (Lamb is a national dish here.) And where are you getting all these beautiful illustrations from?

  3. These recipes are fascinating, Maria. I have never eaten a chestnut but my Mother always had them at Christmas time when she lived in England. You should set up a twitter account so that we can share your posts and link them to your platform.

      Thanks, dear Robbie! Oh, well.. I’m an anti-social media person. I guess if you, my readers, would share something there , it’s the best compliment. I’m thinking to make a book with the Old French customs, riddles & recipes. It will be more useful . 🙂 Have a nice day!
