  • Vegetarians have never had it so good: a wealth of new vegetable types, skilled and inventive cooks delivering dishes from cuisines unknown to our parents' generation, and new kitchen technologies that deliver freshness and flavour inconceivable to the age of cast iron ranges and steaming boiling-pots.So, while today a vegetarian can eat a light, exciting, fully flavoured and satisfying meal that may be the envy of many a carnivore, everyone will admit that the fate of a vegetarian or food-reformer in the reign of Queen Victoria was possibly not so blessed. This little book explores the recipes that were developed by, and available to, the vegetarians of yesteryear.. We will not pretend, nor does the author, that every recipe is a culinary thrill, but each does unlock a certain secret about early vegetarianism, a movement that was of much greater significance in the years before the First World War than we sometimes acknowledge.The literature of vegetarian cookery starts with Thomas Tryon's 1690 Wisdoms Dictates, but then is virtual blank until the second half of the nineteenth century when vegetarianism became more widespread. This book offers a selection of recipes culled from manuals dating broadly from 1856 to 1908. It is arranged in logical chapters covering Soups; Salads; Beans, Lentils and Rice; Cheese and Egg Dishes; Cutlets, Croquettes and Sausages; Moulds and Galantines; Pies and Pastries; Vegetable Dishes; Sauces; Bread; Sweets; Porridge, Gruel, etc., closing with menus for banquets and celebrations including Christmas Dinner. The recipes are offered in their original form with minimal editorial suggestion as to how they may be achieved.
