A Welcoming Feast

SM Stirling, A Meeting At Corvallis (New York, 2007), Chapter Nineteen, pp. 496-500:

soup of pickled clams, black cod, smoked dried shrimp, scallions, mushrooms and ginger with chilled pinot gris and beaten biscuits with new butter;

small skewers of grilled chicken and duck with a spicy-sweet plum glaze over noodles in a spicy cream sauce, roast potatoes, steamed vegetables, gravy and lightly flame-grilled fresh bread with garlic-butter;

ice cream and small round pastries with sliced brandied pears, glazed flaky crusts, chopped hazlenuts and a rare spice.

Kaor, Paul!

Another feast worthy of Nicholas van Rijn! Albeit, unless it was winter, I'm a bit surprised ICE CREAM was available in a society literally unable to use high tech forms of refrigeration.
