Cut one and a half pounds each raw, lean pork and raw beef into one-inch square pieces. Heat two tablespoons melted butter in a braising pan, add the articles, season with a good teaspoon salt, a light teaspoon paprika and cook for twenty minutes, occasionally stirring meanwhile. Add two tablespoons flour, briskly shuffle the pan while cooking for two minutes, pour in one and a half pints cold milk, two gills cream, and mix well until it comes to a boil. Tie in a bunch two branches parsley, a bean garlic, branch chervil, sprig thyme, bay leaf, add to pan, place lid on and set in oven for one hour. With a Parisian potato scoop remove all you can from three peeled, raw, medium potatoes and add to stew, then reset in oven for another hour, being careful to mix once in a while. Remove, lift up pork, beef and potatoes with a skimmer, dress on a dish, strain sauce through a Chinese strainer over meat, etc., and serve.

Place three gills milk and a half gill white wine in a saucepan and boil for ten minutes. Sift a pound flour into a bowl, then gradually pour milk in bowl, briskly stir while adding it. Add an ounce grated Parmesan cheese, a teaspoon salt, saltspoon cayenne and half saltspoon grated nutmeg. Sharply stir for two minutes, crack in one egg, stir for two minutes more, then add two egg yolks and briskly stir for eight minutes longer. Have two quarts boiling water with a teaspoon salt in a saucepan on the fire, then take up batter by teaspoons, and with the aid of a finger drop into the boiling water. (The whole operation should be done as rapidly as possible.) Let slowly boil for six minutes, lift up with a skimmer, drain on a cloth and dress on a hot, deep dish. Place three tablespoons bread crumbs and one and a half tablespoons melted butter in a frying pan, toss on fire until a nice light brown colour, then pour over the gnocchis and serve.
