"Shrewsbury Biscuits... specially presented to the young Princess Victoria when she visited the town in the 1830s."

"Roast Lamb and Damson Cheese. The King of Nepal's favourite meal... accordingly, an order for 2 cwt (100 kg) of Damson Cheese was passed on to Market Drayton W.I. to be delivered to the Guildhall in London."

"Shrewsbury Stew with Mustard and Herb Dumplings. This recipe comes from the classbook of a student attending Radbrook Catering College in 1917 - when lessons were divided into two sections, wartime and peacetime."
