FRANCE ~ Lait De Poule

FRENCH LAIT DE POULE

"Here is a drink which almost makes me regret the attack of influenza, when I discovered that lait de poule is a most efficacious medicine." - Edouard de Pomiance

1 teacup milk
1 yolk of egg
2 teaspoons caster sugar
nutmeg
2 teaspoons cognac

Mix the egg yolk and caster suagr in a small bowl. Boil a cupful of milk with a pinch or two of grated nutmeg. Pour these slowly into the bowl, beating as you do so with a wire whisk. The mixture is ready. Add the cognac, stir and drink immediately while it is still very hot.
