All the recipes in this book are handwritten by Sarah Lord. It is dated 1721 and shows the sort of foods the Lord household enjoyed. The recipes would have been in the family for many generations before they were finally written down.

The Lord family were good housekeepers, with knowledge of preserving foods through making jams, marmalades and pickles, and drying fruit, such as cherries. They also brewed ale, and made fruit wines and vinegars. The book also includes different cakes, puddings and meat dishes.
