A Regency Meal

Gentle Readers: Jana from Time Travel Kitchen wrote to say that she prepared a Regency meal. Her menu consisted of Currie of dressed Meat in Casserole of Rice, Carrot Soup, Young Greens, Orange Pudding, and Turnips. Her post starts with:
Lately, I read part of Pride and Prejudice. This particular passage inspired me to take a trip back to Regency times:

The dinner was as well dressed as any I ever saw. The venison was roasted to a turn--and everybody said they never saw so fat a haunch. The soup was fifty times better than what we had at the Lucases' last week; and even Mr Darcy acknowledged, that the partridges were remarkably well done; and I suppose he has two or three French cooks at least. And, my dear Jane, I never saw you look in greater beauty. Mrs Long said so too, for I asked her whether you did not. -Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
