Document type: Declassified documents

Editorial comments: Although the lunch took place in Strasbourg, the menu (and the food) were provided by the Elysée Palace. This is the first in the long sequence of such menus that MT kept. She was often impressed by the menus produced on official visits, and none more so than those from the Elysée Palace, residence and office of the French President. Not only was the food good, they were illustratated with excellent reproductions of paintings and drawings generally to her taste.
