Guestbook of the restaurant 'Yugoslavia', in Paris

Description

This is an excerpt from the guestbook of the restaurant Yugoslavia, in Paris. Someone suggests introducing an ox brain dish to the menu, to which someone else replies: we can’t talk about any type of brain existing in Yugoslavia, not even one from an ox.

Members of the Yugoslavia Society established the Yugoslavia restaurant as a co-operative in Paris in 1917. Guests were members of the society and used this book to remark on food, prices and service, but also to record comments to reflect the social background of this period.
