Victorian Food Recipes

Here at The Judge's Lodging we love Victorian food and cooking. Occasionally we even hold large Georgian & Victorian 5 course dinners, with around fifty dishes in each.  Don't get the Curator talking about Victorian jellies - she's made loads and collects moulds. We're going to give our old ice-cream maker a go some time too (we're afraid we usually cheat by using a freezer). So, we love it so much we thought we'd share some of our favourite recipes with you. All of these are ones we have made ourselves. You'll also find some more recipes in our learning resource The Great Victorian Picnic.

Cold Boiled Cod Curry

A large fish comes in fine flakes is best. Fry the pieces in butter, with plenty of sliced onions, of a fine brown, and stew them in a little white gravy, thickened with butter and rolled in flour, about a glassful of rich cream, and a large dessert-spoonful of curry powder. - Obs. Cream for curries is, we think, the better of being a little turned, that is, thick sourish, but not clotted. Good butter-milk makes an excellent substitute for cream in this and all common made-dishes. Dods
