A set of early cook books dating back to 1770. These were brought in by a collector of early cookbooks and have been restored as sympathetically to the originals as possible. One of the books is taken from original recipes compiled back to 1390. Serendipitously at the same time Bristol Bound had been approached by a production company, making a series of programmes for the BBC, to help with mock-ups for a series of programmes on early cookery and recipes. The restored cookbooks provided good source material for the production assistant, who had been struggling to find original copies.
