Original Receipt from 'The practice of cookery' By Mrs. Dalgairns (Dalgairns 1830)

Devizes Pie.
Cut into very thin slices, after being dressed, cold calf's head with some of the brains, pickled tongue, sweetbreads, lamb, veal, a few slices of bacon, and hard-boiled eggs; put them in layers into a pie-dish, with plenty of seasoning between each, of cayenne, white pepper, all-spice and salt; fill up the dish with rich gravy; cover it with a flour-and-water paste; bake it in a slow oven, and when perfectly cold, take off the crust, and turn the pie out upon a dish; garnish it with parsley and pickled eggs cut into slices.
