Victorian Recipe Collections

Many cooking articles in Victorian magazines offered a selection of recipes, almost literally from soup to nuts! Since these don't fit easily into other categories (like "soup" or "nuts"), I've gathered them here. You'll also find selections in the Menus section, which focuses on specific meal plans for dinner parties and other events.

The Chafing Dish in Daily Use, by Dora de Blaquière (GOP 1897)
I'm not sure about "chestnuts and oysters," but it might work...

A short piece offering such tidbits as buttered eggs and amber snow (made with apples).
Dainty Dishes for Summer's Last Evenings, by Lucy Helen Yates (GOP 1901)
Salads, jellied meats, and fruit tarts.
Food for Cold Days, by Lucy Helen Yates (GOP 1897)
