Oriflin of tho French Title as Applied
to a Fino Cook.
The Ordi'i of the St. Kiprit was cre
ated in l.'iS", was suppressed by the
revolution and was revived by Louis
XVIII. In ISM. To speak rightly. Louis
XVIII. considered that the order had
never ceased to exist, for he had given
two collars iluring his exile, In 1810,
the one to Francis L, king of the two
Sicilies, and the other to his brother,
the Prince of Salerno, the father of his
brother's wife, the Duchess d'Aumalc.
The ribbon of this order was a light
blue color. It was worn around lie
neck In the reigns of Henry III. and
Henry IV.. but was changed by Louis
XIV.. when It was worn across the
elicit. Tlio Chevaliers of the St. lisprit
were always known under the name of
Les Cordon Bleu, and this was the su
preme honor during the monarchy of
France. It was from this that the title
of "cordon bleu" was given to a llrst
class cook. A gentleman one day de
clared after a good meal that he who
had cooked the dinner had proved him
self a "cordon bleu" among cooks In
other words, the muster of hli art. The
title became quite the rage and Is now
always used to designate a good cook
without the persons who use It know
ing what it menus or still less the ori
gin of the title.
