[…] Day #4 Mr. Darcy’s Birthday Menu […]

Debbie Fortin

An interesting menu, with foods both familiar and not. As someone who likes to try new things the salamagundi and scotched eggs are the first things I would try. Thank you for sharing. I know I will save room for the ratafia cookies as meringue are some of my favorites.


We absolutely LOVE scotch eggs in our house!! We have eaten them for years so yummy! We raise chickens and also make our own sausage to use for them (grinding and seasoning the meat and everything lol). We do mostly scratch cooking and canning in our house(we’ve even made our own butter etc) so the food list was very interesting. ? Love the research you do.


A very interesting menu. Thanks for this lovely feature.


I’m not sure how much of that I would enjoy! The beef and the souffle look nice and maybe the salmagundi (depending on the ingredients.)
I prefer savoury to sweet but love almond flavour so would like the ratafia biscuits and the lemon ones so all in all I wouldn’t starve ?
Thanks for all the detail Sharon.


Yes I love Scotch eggs and have eaten them for years. Always hens eggs apart from a few years ago in a restaurant when for a starter I had one using a duck egg – yummy!
I quite like the idea of wrapping them in pate as you mentioned above as that sounds tasty.
Well basically I love eggs whichever way they come. When my daughter visits from Australia she makes the most wonderful scrambled eggs with smoked salmon ????

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
