Collection of 156 numbered recipes, most with named sources. Two frequent sources are Mrs. Morland (Dorothy Morland, 1740-1823) of Capplethwaite Hall (Yorkshire) and Mrs. Morland of Court Lodge (Kent). Mrs. Matson and Mrs. Wilson, also cited as sources, are women from two families to whom the Morlands were related by marriage. Two recipes are from printed sources, an unidentified magazine (f. 13v) and newspaper (f. 73v). Few of the recipes are attributed to aristocratic households, although the ingredients called for and the variety of preparations suggest relative affluence. The recipes cover a wide range of dishes, including meats, fish, shellfish, savory and sweet puddings, other desserts, and wines. A brief section at the end contains a small number of additional recipes, mostly for household and medical preparations (f. 73-75, with at least one leaf missing both before and after f. 73). A recipe for lettuce soup written on a loose sheet is laid inside the lower cover.
