ARCHANGEL OX & REINDEER TONGUES.

[No-place]: M. Wood, circa 1882. 4 5/8 x 2 7/8” yellow label or recipe slip with directions for preparing “Archangel Ox & Reindeer Tongues” distributed by “M. Wood & Co., 73, Old Broad Street.” We assume the tongues were imported to England from Russia. Though no date or city appears on the label we do find mention of this delicacy in an advertisement for the “Fortnum, Mason & Co.” Piccadilly “Foreign Ware House” in the Dec. 29 1882 issue of “The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser” (a Welsh newspaper digitized and available online). One handwritten correction. Very good to near fine with light staining mostly to recto. Rare glimpse into the preparation recommended for a dining delicacy that would appear to have long since fallen from favor.
