Behold the Elegant Clown Hat of Lobster Salad Heligoland – Courtesy of the Gourmet Old Vienna Cookbook, 1956.  
 
This odd recipe is lobster, potatoes, artichokes, dill pickles, mayonnaise, ketchup, crawfish, truffles and tarragon.  How’s that for some random ingredients?  It sounds like they scooped out the contents of my garbage disposal and made a salad out if it.  And what’s with the stupid cucumber cupcakes?  
 
That champagne looks good though.  Liquid lunch for one, please!
