Chefs and politicians have always enjoyed naming new dishes (or renaming old ones) after famous people or events. One need only think of George W. Bush’s enthusiasm for “Freedom Fries,” the traditional connection of George Washington and cherry pie, or the Napoleonic “Chicken Marengo.”
Memories of the French Revolution are linked to some dishes too. Which one among the following list of dishes was not inspired by a revolutionary event or personality?
1. Soupe Jacobine
2. Lobster Thermidor
3. Tête de cochon (pig’s head)
