#BookBlogger This week I’m heading to @BBC_ARoadshow at @CastleHowardEst, not too far from where I live. When I was 14 years old my elderly Grandma died. Years earlier, while playing in the attic of her old #Victorian home, she gave me a very small #Antique #Recipe #Book of which I still have.
I know nothing else of its origin. Whether it is worth anything or not but there are so many interesting snippets inside it’s pages I thought I would share them with you.
The book is called : GOOD THINGS, Made, Said & Done it is the Thirty-sixth edition and printed in 1898.
This book is so fragile, some of the pages are falling out but nothing has been lost.
The recipe index has a lot interesting ingredients. Powdered Egg obviously because of the era, was the norm in some of the recipes.
Anything you fancy here?
There are also a few remedies too, just incase the “Giblet Pie” doesn’t agree with you.
One last little gem in this book the size of my hand, is this advert for “Fennings”
