Boil beef brisket until tender, and slice thin. Heat 2 tablespoonfuls of butter; add 1 chopped onion. Stir in 1 tablespoonful of flour until brown. Add the water in which the meat was cooked, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1 tablespoonful of brown sugar and some cinnamon and 1 carrot sliced thin, salt, pepper and a few cloves. Let boil. Add the brisket and simmer fifteen minutes. Serve hot or cold.
Cook some rice in a rich chicken stock; place on a platter. Fry 6 eggs and trim neatly; sprinkle with salt, black pepper, chopped parsley and lemon-juice. Put the eggs on the rice and pour a little hot tomato-sauce over the base of the platter and serve.
Remove the bones from a large cooked fish and chop to a fine mince. Mix with 2 beaten eggs, 2 tablespoonfuls of cream, 1 tablespoonful of butter, season with salt, black pepper and 1/4 teaspoonful of paprica. Beat well together with some bread-crumbs; fill a mold with the pudding and let steam one hour; then boil the sauce in which the fish was cooked, add 1 tablespoonful of butter, chopped parsley and chopped onion. Season highly; boil and serve with the pudding.
Parboil the egg-plant and cut in half. Scrape out some of the inside and chop some cooked lamb, 2 green peppers, 1 onion, and 2 tomatoes. Then mix with a beaten egg, 1 tablespoonful of butter, salt and pepper to taste. Fill the halves with the mixture; sprinkle with bread-crumbs and bits of butter. Put in a baking-dish with a little stock and bake.
