Stacie Chandler’s Note:
All recipes taken from “Gourmet” cookbook, eighth printing, 1956
Each recipe serves 6. Pick the combination of egg, fish, and side dish that you like best. These are “vintage” recipes, and the ingredients or methods may be unfamiliar to you. Don’t be intimidated. For instance, the results of a quick search for tartar sauce in 2020 features a variety of versions, most of which start with mayo and feature pickles, capers, and/or olives. The late-1950s version below does not. Similarly, the idea of pounding ingredients into a paste has no doubt been replaced by a quick “blitz” in the food processor. Fresh chervil can be hard to locate in ordinary times and is probably harder to find during a pandemic. Parsley will work.

Please feel free to substitute ingredients or methods.  It’s your kitchen and your brunch!
