I know hot dogs are pre-cooked, but yuck.

Any other recipes in that book that you liked?

Paul, I don't "like" that hot dog recipe at all! I agree with Helene - yuck! I simply replied to your query.
Although I've read a lot of the cook book, intently imagining preparing its recipes for decades, and despite the fact that I own more than 20 copies of it, I have never cooked anything from it. I do cook every day and even run an Estonian cooking group, but my list of dishes is pretty routine. I'm constantly clipping recipes from newspapers and magazines and printing out recipes from the internet, and have fully intended to cook something from Le Clercq's book, but wonder if I ever will?
Here is a delightful blog entry, with photos of the food and assemblage (plus a video of Le Clercq and Jacques d'Amboise dancing Western Symphony), about one dinner arranged by "The Ballet Cook Book Dinner Series", which meets to cook and eat the recipes from LeClercq's book.
