On offer is a very interesting and unusual volume - a handwritten book of cordial, wine cocktail and beer recipes from circa 1900 from a very old, established Chemist firm in the UK. The BBC Good Food Guide calls cordials 'capturing the taste of summer' but whether it's capturing a taste or securing a winter's supply, this book has it. The book is about 7 inches by 4 1/2 inched and contains 190 pages. It is about 50% complete. The recipes are generally quite legible and understandable. Taylor, Brawn & Flood Co. Ltd were Chemists in Bedford, UK, about 60 miles north of London. The firm was established in 1780 and continued until 1984. This handwritten recipe book dates likely from the inter-war years - there is a letter enclosed, dated May 20m 1943. They manufactured many different types of compounds and chemicals, including soft drinks and cordials. It is quite likely that this recipe book was used in the manufacture of their products. Here are some of the recipes (note there are abbreviations which are not explained): "Orange Champagne: 6 gal (plain syrup) 9 g ac Tart. Liq. 3 g D & S oranges 3 g aurantine (soda) 1/2 g Foam; Cream Soda: 4 gal (plain syrup) 2 g ac Tart. Liq. 4g American Cream Soda (London Co 5/ lb) (no Foam) See machine is clean and well washed out before and after use (pipes and all); Ginger Wine: 115 Gal Sugar 2 cwt Phosph Citric Acit 2pts Burgoyne [ ] wine [ ] Caramel [ ] Liquid Pine Colour 3v Special Ginger Base C iv Glacial Acetic Acid 3v; Spanish Clay 1 lb Acid [ ] 11g". For the venturesome chef, this is an explorer's delight. Food writers, especially those who focus on historic or interesting recipes will find this volume a fascinating read.; Manuscript; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall; KEYWORDS: HISTORY OF, TAYLOR, BRAWN & FLOOD, CORDIALS, HISTORIC RECIPES, BEDFORD, UK, UNITED KINGDOM, BEDFORDSHIRE, ENGLAND, EARLY 20TH CENTURY, HOMEMADE BEVERAGES, WINE RECIPES, VINTAGE RECIPES, CULINARY MANUSCRIPTS, BEER RECIPES, WINE COCKTAIL, EARLY 20TH CENTURY, 1900s, BEVERAGES, OLD-TIME LIQUEUR RECIPES, WINE AND WINE MAKING, UK BEVERAGE MANUFACTURERS; VINTAGE SOFT DRINKS, UK CHEMISTS; HOW TO MAKE CORDIAL; HOW TO MAKE LIQUEUR, ENGLISH CUISINE, SOFT DRINKS PRODUCTION IN EARLY 20th CENTURY, SPIRITS, ALCOHOL, HANDWRITTEN, MANUSCRIPT, DOCUMENT, LETTER, AUTOGRAPH, WRITER, HAND WRITTEN, DOCUMENTS, SIGNED, LETTERS, MANUSCRIPTS, DIARY, DIARIES, JOURNALS, PERSONAL HISTORY, SOCIAL HISTORY, HISTORICAL, HOLOGRAPH, WRITERS, AUTOGRAPHS, PERSONAL, MEMOIR, MEMORIAL, ANTIQUITÉ, CONTRAT, VÉLIN, DOCUMENT, MANUSCRIT, PAPIER ANTIKE, BRIEF, PERGAMENT, DOKUMENT, MANUSKRIPT, PAPIER OGGETTO D'ANTIQUARIATO, ATTO, VELINA, DOCUMENTO, MANOSCRITTO, CARTA ANTIGÜEDAD, HECHO, VITELA, DOCUMENTO, MANUSCRITO, PAPEL
