Line a glass dish with stale sponge-cake. Sprinkle with wine. Make a boiled custard. Use 4 yolks of eggs and flavor with rose-water. Beat the whites with pulverized sugar and flavor to taste. Pour the custard over the cake and place the stiffly beaten whites on top. Put on the ice and serve very cold.
Cut tough ends from the asparagus; scrape and boil in salted water until tender. Make a cream sauce. When done, stir in the yolk of an egg; season with a little white pepper. The sauce must be rather thick and poured hot over the asparagus. Serve with veal chops.
