Sussex Recipe Book
With a Few Excursions into Kent
Mrs Samuelson was part of a movement in the 1920s and 30s for preserving English regional recipes before they were lost for ever. This book, published in 1937, was a fruit of that campaign. A number of the recipes printed here are from her own very large collection of cookery books. Others come from local manuscripts that were still to be found at that time in the libraries of the families for whom they were written, the most notable being Philadelphia Shoebridges manuscript cookery book of 1708. Sussex Pies and Sussex Pond Pudding (still a favourite today) are here, as well as Sussex Hogs Pudding, Tipsy Kent Squire and recipes from the Countess of Kents book of 1671. The range of ingredients is unusually wide, but adventurous cooks can still use most of these recipes today. This is the first reprint of this interesting title. It contains delightful period black and white drawings by Vincent Hill from the original book.
