It is!  The editor, Prof. Ballerini, spoke before the Culinary 
Historians of Southern California a couple of year ago or so, and was 
delighted to hear about people who actually wanted it as a COOKBOOK 
rather than an historical study.  He wants us to do the thing with a 
peacock served in its skin... um, I'm not sure I want to risk that, and 
besides, peacocks are protected in L.A. County.   Last I heard, he was 
still at UCLA and I want to invite him to a major feast, one of these 
days.  When's the next one within striking distance of West L.A. 
anyway?  Next coronation is in Las Vegas.  They are a great group but 
that's not near the coast.
