Example text

Only wild boar is roasted on a spit, and even then, only young wild boar is explicitly indicated for roast. In the 1674 L’Art de bien traiter, the only large wild game appears in 5 recipes for adult and young wild boar, the latter accounting for 3 roasts or 60 percent of the recipes for this type of food. In 1660, Le Nouveau Cuisinier offers 7 roasts out of 26 large wild game recipes, or 27 percent. 19 Lastly, Le Cuisinier françois in 1651 contains 9 roasts out of 26 large-game recipes (a ratio of 35 percent), and it likewise accepts the roasting of adult animals.

Still, the menus reveal that furred game was used for roast less often than feathered game but more often than butcher’s meat and even domestic fowl: the same three menus feature furred game as a roast and as an hors d’oeuvre with equal frequency (twice) and never as an entrée or soup. In conclusion, the various types of meat were distributed very differently among the stages of the meal: Organ meats were used only for hors d’oeuvres and entrées or entremets. Butcher’s meat provided hardly any roasts (1 to 3 out of 127 butcher’s meat recipes), few entremets (19), but many entrées (103) and hors d’oeuvres (23).

9 Eggs tended to be eaten mainly on meatless days, and only then were they served as entrées. 10 Although there was no church ruling against eating meatless dishes on meat days, egg entrée recipes for meatless days may not be the ideal example of what could be served as entremets at other times. La Cuisinière bourgeoise, with no mention of meat or meatless days, categorizes “Eggs à la jardinière” as an entrée. ”11 But let there be no confusion: whatever their preparation, eggs served on meat days could be served only as entremets.
