Georgian Cookbook


A major discovery in the Monastery Archives  so far is the Begbrook House Kitchen Cookbook, written circa 1793. Begbrook House was in Frenchay, Bristol, and owned during the middle of the 19th century by the Parsons family one of whom, Daniel, donated his collection to Downside in 1887.

The wonderful recipes in the book range from plumb pudding, chicken curry and coconut tarts to almond faggots, the Sally Lunn bun and even furniture oil. The publication of this book will enable a new generation to enjoy recipes from the Georgian period.
