Complete Confectioner and Family Cook (1809)

[Scanned Images Contents]

This has come down from the bookshelf by request. Someone who I’m a dedicated follower of, political commentator Maximilien Robespierre, had asked if I had any old Scottish recipes from the 18th century. As this book was published in 1809, we can safely assume not much had changed with regards these recipes in the 10 years since the time-frame he was asking about. These will be uploaded in a slightly different way. Each chapter has a lot of sections, so I’ll upload the entire chapters but insert links to each section so they can be jumped to if mentioned in a future chapter. That way, if a recipe tells you to use a certain technique, you’ll be able to jump straight to said technique. It’s been interesting working out how to do this on the site as I’ve not been in a position I felt it was necessary, though I do love my links. I’m hoping if anyone does try any of these out for themselves that they record the process and/or outcome in some fashion so I can add those experiences to the recipes. I’m hoping to try out a few myself.
