Your website, madame

I've been going through a little Madame de Pompadour obsession lately (I know, who hasn't?) and was toying with the idea of recreating some denominator of a 44-course meal she hosted on November 4, 1747. Since I didn't have my Nancy Mitford biography on me, I tried finding the menu online. Thanks to Google I not only found it (in French & Italian), but there is an entire Madame de Pompadour website to play with. There goes my lunch hour--huzzah!

With an old fashioned hug, Prof. K.
