--------------------ANCIENT & CLASSIC RECIPES-------------------

MULAGA-TAWNY SOUP
Dr. William Kitchiner, The Cook's Oracle,
(London: John Hatchard, Picadilly, 2nd edition, 1818)

"Take two quarts of water, and boil a nice fowl or chicken, then put in the following ingredients, a large white onion, a large chilly*, two teaspoonsful of ginger pounded, the same of currystuff, one teaspoonful of turmeric, and half a teaspoonful of black pepper: boil all these for half an hour, and then fry some small onions, and put them in. Season it with salt, and serve it up in a tureen. Obs. - It will be a great improvement, when the fowl is about half boiled, to take it up and cut it into pieces, and fry them and put them into the soup the last thing."

* The pod of which Cayenne pepper is made.

Mulligatawny soup was originally an Indian curry soup adapted by the British during colonial days.

-----------------WHO'S WHO IN THE CULINARY ARTS-----------------

Dr. James C. Jackson (19th century)
Dr. James C. Jackson of Dansville, N.Y., was an ardent advocate of spas and hydrotherapy during the 19th century. He also advocated a healthy diet, and developed what was probably the first breakfast cereal, Granula, in 1863. 'Granula' was made using sheets of baked Graham flour, broken up, rebaked and broken up again.  (Later, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg would develop his own similar breakfast cereal with various whole grains. He named it 'Granula', got sued by Dr. Jackson, and renamed it 'Granola').

--------------------------COOKING TIPS--------------------------

Chervil (Anthriscus cereifolium) is an aromatic herb, a member of the parsley or carrot family, and indigenous to the areas around the Black and Caspian Seas. It is an essential ingredient of fines herbes, widely used in French cuisine. Chervil has a mild flavor suggestive of anise, and is a great addition to potato salad, egg dishes, soups and tossed salads. It has a mild flavor suggestive of anise. When used in cooked dishes, it should be added near the end of cooking to avoid flavor loss.
