Christmas Pie from 1867.

'First, bone a fowl, a wild duck, a pheasant, and two woodcocks ... ' begins the recipe for Christmas Pie in Charles Elmé Francatelli's book ‘The Cook’s Guide and Housekeeper and Butler’s Assistant’. The chef to Queen Victoria obviously had more help in the kitchen than most of us can aspire to, but if you can rustle up some help, and want to try it, the full instructions have been added to the Vintage Christmas Recipes feature. The recipes are in order of date, so just scroll down to 1867.
