Empress of France 1957 Menu

This 1957 menu for what was presumably a trip between Canada and Europe contrasts sharply with CP’s hotel and dining car menus. Since the price of meals was included in the fare, the menu offers table d’hôte only with five entrées: brill, sole, veal, duck, and lamb.

This is our second 1957 Empress of France dinner menu; this one is dated August 22 while the previous one was dated June 28. The entrées differ somewhat and, unlike this one, the June menu specifically suggested a diner maigre (lean dinner) of fish and some of the other items.
