    This is one of a bunch of old cookbooks i inherited from a great uncle who was a cook at the Waldorf-Astoria in the 1920s - 50s. I've spent hours looking at this old book and learning how to make pickled sheep butts and jellied duck eyeballs, amongst many other yummy things...

      Now that you've learnt how to make all that yummy stuff are you going to make some of it?

      You need to make one of the more "unusual" recipes and post it!
    3. walksoftly walksoftly, 9 years ago
      A video of you eating jellied duck eyeballs would be fun for us:-)

      like so many earthly pleasures, i prefer to read about them than to actually TRY them. but please don't let me stop you...

      If one was to eat jellied Duck eyeballs, would you turn them away from you so that they weren't looking you in the eye when you pop them in your mouth?
    6. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 9 years ago
      i prefer to stare them down rather than eat them.

      Fabulous illustrations! Fascinating! Your great uncle must have had wonderful stories to tell! Did he teach you to make any dishes? Did he teach you culinary skills? miKKo

      no. i liked my uncle walter lots, but he was not very sociable- spent all of his time w/ his basset hounds. my great aunt was more sociable - friends w/ julia childs.

      That's where you got your cultcha from. lol
    10. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 9 years ago
      walksoftly - definitely! the cultcha was much heavier on that side of the family than the other. my memere's sisters were a real fun bunch - all real beauties who grew up very poor, but they all went to work at the big, fancy hotels during the depression and that's where they met their future husbands. one of them became friends w/ the archbishop of new york and they'd go riding together which made all the gossip columns at the time - big scandal! she ended up marrying a future lieut. governor of new york who was my godfather and a total mafioso. [not going to mention names here!]

      pickled sheeps butt, MMM good! I think i saw that on "Oddities".
    12. walksoftly walksoftly, 9 years ago
      Sounds like you have plenty of memories & stories to tell from that side of you family, a very interesting group!

      Will try to combine the two recipes by preparing pickled sheep's butts stuffed with jellied duck's eye balls ;-D
    14. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 7 years ago
      pickled sheep butts stuffed w/ jellied duck's eyeballs - my eyes are watering just thinking about it. and my stomach is rumbling w/ laughter.
    15. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Must be delicious, my friends adore my recipe of flea's gums stuffed with cockroaches eye lids :-P
