Post Eating in culottes and wigs - with period recipes
OK, so this is a little over the top, but it does have some fun costumes and what appear to be period dishes: ... ution.html

A very engaging read, and I was happy to learn of the history of mayonnaise! :lol:

Not so happy to read the old glutton insults repeated again, although most times they were fair to Antoinette with fact based statements. I didn't know she loved carrots and therefore aspic was created for the journey to Varennes! At other statements I wondered where they got their "facts" from. What basis is there to the claim that Louis had game pie sent to his bed?? :roll:

Antoinette had electric currents run through her body and loved eating lots of pastries and meringues?

Rabbits in Love - :shock:

Thanks for sharing.
