Post subject:  Marie's Favorite Food and Drink

Forgive me if this topic has already been discussed but I am very curious as to know what was Marie Antoinette's favorite food and drink?

Teas...wines...desserts...pastries..and all the sorts :D

She most of all enjoyed her breakfast. She drank coffee with milk or chocolate and ate a little Viennese bread that seems to actually be the one we now call "croissant" and that is so popular in France.

She introduces "croissant" in France. This Viennese bread was modeled this shape to celebrate this Autrian's victory on Turquy, which symbol is moon quarter.

She enjoyed white meat and even more chicken. Boiled or fried chicken, pigeon or duck. I think duck was her favorite meal. Rosalie noticed that she ate almost all her vegetables, but that she cut her chicken so that she would eat it in two days.

She drank Ville d'Avray water, that was a pure water like "Evian" or "Vittel" water.

In the Tuileries, she sent secret messages through teas and biscuits packs, so that we can imagine she drank tea and ate biscuits.

She loved chocolate, triple vanilla chocolate and all kinds of special recipes. She ate strawberries with milk. But did she enjoy pastries ? I am sorry, I don't know... And, from memorialists, it is not possible to imagine Antoinette's room full of pastries as they were shot in miss Coppola's movie. In her actual life, she was not sponsored by Laduree !

I also tend to eat more white meat than dark...the dark doesnt exactly please my taste (mostly chicken)...but i do love fish (any seafood) and beef as well.

Marie Antoinette did not enjoy fish. None of Marie Therese's children did, curiously, she complains about it. Marie Antoinette said that she did not like "le maigre", that is fish and food you are supposed to eat for Lent.

Well that is very interesting...although not many people like fish to begin with. I love it though :wink:
