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.

A Devonshire Squab Pie

Make a good crust, cover the dish all over, put at the bottom a layer of sliced pippins, strew over them some sugar, then a layer of mutton stakes, cut from the loin, well seasoned with pepper and salt, then another layer of pippins, peel some onions and slice them thin, lay a layer over the apples, then a layer of mutton, then pippins and onion; pour in a pint of water, so close your pye and bake it.  Hannah Glasse
