The History of Recipes
Written cooking instructions as an idea can be observed back into ancient history, in truth as far back into recorded history as early Egypt, and possibly even further. Having said that, generally, these old recipes were just very basic pictorial, hieroglyphic or cunieform instructions for meal preparation.
In an interesting twist, the most ancient recipe discovered so far, according to academics are some tablets in ancient Sumerian which describe the baking of bread which is then used to make a drink, quite possibly a form of beer as it is recorded as making anyone who tried it feel wonderful and blissful.
Progressing into Roman times 25BC a man called Apicius created a number of scripts which described recipes enjoyed by wealthy Romans. In his works, he tells us how the roman meals were separated into hors d`oeuvres, main meal and dessert, a style of dining still practiced today. Aspicius describes how the cooks of his times made use of many different spices, including many that are still in use today like thyme, mint and asafoetida.
Over the succeeding few hundred years, the powerful and rich competed with each other to offer the most exotic meals, and because of this the best chefs and their collection of recipes were greatly in demand. However, it wasn`t until the nineteenth century that haute cuisine and recipe publications became really popular. The Famous Mrs Beeton in the UK, and the equally well-known Fannie Merritt Farmer in the US, dedicated the best years of their lives to assembling, verifying, and writing down popular recipes of the day.
When we get to the twentieth century, cookbooks are in great demand, mostly as a result of higher levels of literacy, people having increased spare time and having more money.
The TV revolution gave us TV cookery programs and the recipe books that accompanied them.
And that pretty much brings us to the present day and the internet revolution, permitting everyone to search through massive numbers of recipes just like those on the site you are now reading.
We hope you enjoy this Ozark Pudding recipe.
