MENUS OF THE PAST

 I don't have set menus. Each menu, each dinner, lunch, party is an individual and custom menu. I went through my files today and pulled out about 40 or so menus from the past. They are in no particular order. I can't even remember some of these parties...but there's proof that they happened. Some people have more adventurous tastes than others and I like to create original dishes. Some have bigger appetites and the meals have to be more extensive. Here are about thirty-six or so scanned menus from my files. Sorry if some are difficult to read. I had to scan them as photos rather than pdf's so I could upload them here. Have fun.
