Has anyone read Fannie's Last Supper? If so, what did you think?
I gave it a rather negative review on librarything. However,
some of the recipes sound interesting.
I am especially intrigued by the jellies, although I don't think I
would make my own gelatin(e)* from animal parts. Has anyone here
tried constructing jellies with a design? I assume that one would
need to build up the supporting gelatin(e) gradually (e.g., if one
was making a spiral of colored gelatin(e) inside. I need to go
look at my Victorian cookbooks.
[*Gelatin(e)--how did that "e" get dropped in the United States?
I need to look at my booklets to see when that happened too.]
