It's hard to believe that this beautiful image of a little boy chef feeding the moon a piece of steak is over a hundred years old. Courtesy of the University of Nevada's menu collection, it is dated 1890 and is attributed to the Café Anglais in Versailles, France. Among the dishes on offer is Poulet Marengo, a chicken dish created fin 1880 or Napoleon when he defeated the Austrians on the battlefield at Marengo in Italy. The Emperor of France then considered it his "lucky dish." We have been unable to find a Café Anglais in Versailles and wonder if it is really from the world famous 19th century restaurant Cafe Anglais in Paris - perhaps the chefs from that restaurant came to cook at Versailles? The Café Anglais in Paris opened in 1802 and closed in 1913 and was referenced by authors such as Marcel Proust, Umberto Eco and in the Alice B. Toklas Cookbook. It is also mentioned in the Oscar winning 1987 Danish film Babette's Feast.
This is also available as a Ladies and Men's digitally printed tee.
