Père Labat Recipes # 1 Food and Fasting

tanlistwa, Menu de maigre et ustensiles de cuisine par Jean Siméon Chardin, 1731, peinture à l'huile

Today, since we are in the season of Lent, I propose paradoxically - Labat being rather a worshipper of good food - to start this series on the question of fasting. On the menu: manatee, iguana, diablotin, coffee, tea and chocolate.
