RE: Some Trivial Info
I have no knowledge of whether or not Lincoln ate head cheese. However, he loved Mock Turtle Soup, and the thought of it makes me gag.
My computer has crashed, and I have limited internet access these days, but I must comment that one of my favorite 19th century cookbooks is THE GOOD HOUSEKEEPER. In it is a comment from the editor regarding eating the breast of a robin. She stated that anyone who would kill and eat such a wonderful song bird should have the bird placed around his neck like the albatroos in Coleridge's THE RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER. She then preceeds to explain how to cook the bird.
And . . no . . I shall never try eating robin red breast.
