The 1810 Cookbook

I wrote a foreword, so obviously I recommend The 1810 Cookbook:
"a cookbook of 155 recipes and remedies compiled by Jane Winnington-Ingram from 1810 onwards and published, 201 years later, by her great-great-great-grand-daughter Verity Walker"
It's fascinating mixture of recipes from curries to face-creams to cholera cures - and whilst most old cook books are just lists of ingredients, this one gives measurements and instructions, which was very unusual. I love the way it was handed down from mother to daughter.
