O.T.: Jesus, what a depressing week. Everything goes wrong and no one helps
you...I went to sleep with my girlfriend. We both woke up. She had a dream
that I was cheating on her and she smacked me.
Back to food. Why are the "boula" books and articles all from New York City?
Did it start at a hotel? Are the NYPL's menus digitized yet?
I checked again for "boula" (green turtle and pea soup). It's called "boula
gratinee" or "boula boula."

There was a luncheon J. O. Voit gave for Raould Ricoult the other day at the
Sherry-Netherland cafe-bar, and all during the luncheon the honor guest took
notes on a little memo pad by his plate.
When the boula (a comination green turtle and pea soup) was served he
scribbled a new sheet and thrust it into his pocket.

And next is soup - "Soup of the evening," as the mock turtle plaintively
sang it. Here one observes a distinct difference between American and English
taste, for while your Briton, if he hasn't his three-and-six to invest in a bowl
of green turtle, must plunge his spoon into something that is of the
consistency of mashed potatoes, the average American diner-out prefers those that
are light, and which will not fill space solidly when taken aboard.
One exception is a wide preference for pea soup, masquerading as "Cream St.
Germain," or something else French and fancy. Here there is always a demand
for the standard varieties, such as green turtle, chicken gumbo, consomme, and
chicken broth. Consomme, in some restaurants, with the addition of a few
chunks of bread or toast and a few shavings of vegetables, has been known to
appear as "croute-au-pot" and "petite marmite."

of "NYC." Also, it was under restaurant "guidebooks."
It antedates "egg roll." It antedates "Beef a la Lindstrom." It's got a nice

After the caviar comes _boula_, a deliciously prepared soup made from such
singularly incongruous ingredients as turtle and pea soups and sherry, topped
off with a spoonful of whipped cream and then baked in the oven.
