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.

Brockely in Sallad

Brockely is a pretty dish, by way of Sallad in the middle of the table. Boil it like asparagus, lay it in a dish, and beat up oil and vinegar, and a little salt. Garnish round with Stertion-buds. Or boil it, and have plain butter in a cup- Or farce French roles with it, and buttered eggs together for change- Or farce your roles with muscles done the same way as oysters, only no wine.

Strange But True

  • list arrowThere's nothing like a nice private shower!

    Having a shower in Victorian times meant a line of maids passing water up a ladder to the final one who poured it over your head whilst you stood in your metal frame or tent contraption - you can see one at Erdigg, an historic house near Wrexham, North Wales.
