1d20 Table of Choice Course Dinner Menus (a found table)

Scrolling through Barkham Burrough's Encyclopedia of Astounding Facts and Useful Information, I found the following table that is perfect for tavern menus. This work is in the public domain, so I have no ethical qualms about presenting it here. Obviously feel free to substitute New World foods that don't fit in your fantasy world's milieu.
