Christmas Recipes from QMU!

No need to  invest in a cookery book this year, this recipe from a student of The Edinburgh School of Cookery and Domestic Economy in  1926 covers the basics (minus the sprouts!). This and other recipes were taught to students of the Diploma Course I which included classes in elementary, plain and high class cookery.


For more recipes like these and dinner party tips from the 1920s see the QMU Archives Pinterest boards
