Weekend Cooking – Forgotten Recipes

Several weeks ago I came across a website, aimed mainly at genealogy. You can visit the site HERE. One of the links on the main page is called Barry’s Forgotten Recipes. You do need to register, but having done so you receive each week a link to some forgotten recipes and then periodically a complete PDF version of an antique cookbook.

Intrigued, I registered and began to receive the weekly email with the update for that week. I also received a full PDF of The New Dr Price Cook Book.

What is quite useful, is that the weekly update provides not only the recipe, but also the date the recipe has been sourced from.

Overall, this is quite a useful site, for those who just like reading old recipes and for those interested in the social and domestic lives of our forebears.
