Marrow is very rarely served nowadays, but it was very popular in England, both as an ingredient and served separately, until the First World War.

When Francatelli was chef to Queen Victoria, she ate marrow toast prepared in this way as a savoury at dinner whenever she dined alone or en famille.
Remove all the marrow from the bones, cut into pieces about
