BANQUET - DAY 6 - THE SALAD
FROM LES RECETTES PRIVEES DE WILHELMINE
In Wilhelmine’s day, the world was not big on salads the way we know them. However, according to her cookbook, it seems she did manage to cancel the appointments of a few of the aristocrats with Madame la Guillotine by feeding their guards a strange mixture of wormwood leaves and mashed pumpkin. Wormwood is the basis for Absinthe, a liquor popular among the French Impressionists and their followers. Anyway, the mixture sounded awful, and since I have no idea where to buy wormwood leaves, I decided to go with the colors instead.
