Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: Chatworth Hydro
Date: 1910 - 1914
Description/Historical Information: Decorated boar's head and other food at a Christmas Banquet.
Dr. Annie Gray, who gives talks on Mrs. Beeton, has said that such items would take a long time to prepare, not only cooking the head for many hours but steeping it in beetroot juice or red wine so it changed colour. It is probable that the white piping was lard.
