  • About

This is an unusual way of cooking lamb. The recipe appears in a manuscript from a manor house between Cheddar and Priddy and dates from the early eighteenth century. It is recommended as a good dish for a dinner for visiting friends. In this kind of household a pie, a roast of pork, a dish of chickens and one of peas might be set on the table with the lamb. A second course of one or two lighter savoury dishes and some jellies and a syllabub would follow.
