OBJECT OF THE MONTH – OCTOBER 2018

October's Object of the Month (OOTM) started well, as I forgot to photograph it. The images attached to this blog post are from the object itself, and I printed them out alongside for the display.

The object was a notebook of recipes from Gunner L H Webster, who was born in Oxford and attended the Army School of Cookery in Weymouth in the August of 1915. I liked this notebook for the illustrations and for the First World War recipes, with liberal use of beef dripping! I had an idea to recreate some of the recipes and photograph them for the display, however the ingredients for Gunner Webster's 'soused herring' were tricky to come by.
