Cures for back ache

Cures for back ache

As winter weather set in, such recipes would have been in demand at Cranmore Hall in Somerset. The recipe book illustrated comes from the Paget Family Archive and is found cheek by jowl with cellar books and advertisements for champagne, hinting at the domestic economy of the country house. The booklet contains both medical and culinary recipes in hands apparently of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and may well have been compiled by an E. Moore, a member of the extended Paget Family. DM106/140
