Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

  1. I love the Menu. Fascinating slice of culinary history. Plenty of protein! Did not know what Scotch Woodcock was. Was pretty sure it had nothing to do with woodcocks. Got that right, at least. Very interesting story behind it. But I will leave off the anchovy!
