Chekhov's Menu for Journalists

I have Choice Cuts: A Miscellany of Food Writing by Mark Kurlansky and there is a short menu for journalists proposed by Anton Chekhov. M.K. said that Chekhov must have been very young when he scribbled this:

An eight-course meal
  1. A glass of vodka
  2. Cabbage soup and yesterday’s kasha
  3. Two glasses of vodka
  4. Suckling pig with horseradish
  5. Three glasses of vodka
  6. Horseradish, cayenne pepper and soy sauce
  7. Four glasses of vodka
  8. Seven bottles of beer

A drunk Russian
