220 Year Old UK Cookbook Contains Curry Recipe!
A recipe for chicken curry has been found in an English cookbook dating back over 200 years, proving our obsession with the dish.
The Daily Telegraph recently reported the find of the handwritten recipe with ingredients including chicken, rice powder, curry powder and veal gravy. It is one of 142 recipes in the book created by a cook at Begbrook House near Bristol in 1793.
The cookbook came to light when it was found by monks in a donation of a book collection to Downside Abbey at Radstock in Somerset. It is believed to be a working kitchen cookbook, rather than one used for meals for special occasions.
Amongst the other handwritten recipes are ones for boiled calf’s head, turtle soup, plum loaf and detailed instructions on how to cure a ham.
