Bill of Fare During the Siege of Paris (English)

The Franco-German War (1870-71), brought about the fall of the Second Empire and the siege of Paris. This is an English translation of the Menu from a dinner given in Paris during the 1871 Siege.

1871 Siege of Paris Menu

Note from Chef James, publisher of FoodReference.com
My thanks to George of Providence, Rhode Island for sending this copy to me. Here is a copy of his email:

October 2, 2006
Dear James, This document is in my possession. The original measures 3'' x 4.5'' held in between glass, and was given to me by Mrs. Grace Fraser here in Providence RI. she was a dear friend and passed away many years ago. I have always been fascinated by this rare artifact and thought how lucky we are to live and eat in this land of plenty, and ponder what the people of France had to deal with during this horrible time in history.
Be my guest and publish it on your site...I think it is very important for people to see and to think about.   George
