The first feast I ever worked on I did a course of recipes based out of
Apicius. The most frequent comment I had was that the food seemed so
ordinary. If I recall the menu I did for the course it was:

Herbed Peas
Fried Carrots
Chicken in Cream Sauce over Pasta
Cucumber Salad
Red Snapper with Red Wine Sauce
Pinenut Custard

I would have to go back to my original redactions (Vehling and Rosenbaum &
Flowers were the only resources available to me at the time, Rosenbaum &
Flowers was on loan to me) and see if I would change any of them.
