With the Christmas season upon us, I thought I would share some winter recipes from the brilliant collection of recipe books which we hold in the archives at the Ulster Folk Museum. Largely dating to the 19th and 20th centuries, they are a fascinating resource in that they provide an insight into cooking and baking trends throughout the decades. Some contain fabulously opulent recipes, whilst others are geared to those with modest incomes. Earlier this year, Aoife Kennedy from Colaiste Feirste spent a week with us on work experience. She helped to pick out these seasonal recipes. I hope you enjoy!
