    I love these old recipes with truffles. 2 pounds for a 12 pound turkey sounds nice but would make for a pretty expensive bird... I have an old German cookbook from the 1880s where one recipe starts with "Brush and peel 6 pounds of truffles..."

    It's an old Davidis-Holle which used to be the standard household cookbook in Germany since the mid 1800s. I have a few copies but left them all with my folks in Germany. Here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henriette_Davidis

    Mr. Prosper Grevillot! Before or after Ranhofer?

    This was after the great Chef Charles Ranhofer left he was chef until 1896 and made Delmonico's the restaurant know world over
    and created many dishes such as lobster newburg , He left us with the great cookbook Epicurean which you can find on line .

    and the kitchen of the restaurant.

    Chef Prosper Grevillot also wrote cookbooks which three were combined and can be found on line under his name.

    I saw that online version, have to figure out how to get those on my Ipad, there seem to be a few readers that can handle them. The pictures show cleaning devices for forks (top) and knives (bottom). The last short paragraph is nice, it talks about kitchen boards and wooden utensils. Something like 'Kitchen (=cutting) boards and wooden utensils, of which the best are made from maple because this is the whitest, are scrubbed with hot water, soap, and sand. However, not with soda because this will make the wood gray."
