Lard a round of beef with slices of bacon and put in a large saucepan. Cover and let brown a few minutes. Add sliced onion and boiling water to cover. Let cook slowly until tender; then scrape 6 carrots and cut thin; add 2 sliced onions, 2 cloves of garlic and let cook until tender. Thicken with butter and flour. Season highly with salt, pepper and parsley; add to the meat, and let all cook together a half hour and serve hot.
Boil some prunes until tender. Remove the kernels and mash the prunes well. Mix with sugar, cinnamon and lemon-juice to taste. Make a rich biscuit dough, roll out and place on a well-buttered baking-pan. Fill with the prunes and let bake until done. Serve cold.
Clean sheep's kidneys and cut into thin slices. Sprinkle with salt, cayenne pepper and grated lemon peel. Then dip in beaten egg and fine bread-crumbs and broil on a hot greased gridiron. Serve on buttered toast, spread with curry paste.
