The History of Recipes
Academics have tracked the existance of recipes far back into antiquity, in fact as far back into history as pharonic Egypt, and possibly even further. Having said that, these, early recipes were just very simple pictorial instructions for meal preparation.
During Roman times around 25BC a roman called Apicius wrote some documents showing how to cook the recipes enjoyed by wealthy roman citizens. He tells us how the roman meals were divided into appetizers, entrees and afters, something we still use today. Aspicius also tells us how the chefs of Roman times made use of many different herbs and spices, including a few that will be familiar to modern chefs like basil, fennel and dill.
During the succeeding few hundred years, the powerful and wealthy houses strove to serve the most extravagent banquests, and because of this chefs and their recipes increased in prestige. Notwithstanding that, it was during the 1800s that cooking and recipe books reached a high level of popularity. Mrs Isabella Beeton in the UK, and Fannie Merritt Farmer in the US, dedicated years of their lives to assembling, verifying, and publishing recipes that were common in the better off homes of the day.
Like it or not, the introduction of television gave us TV chefs and the demand for the spin-off recipe books.
Which brings us neatly to the present day and the invention of computers and the internet, allowing everybody to search through massive numbers of recipes like those on our web site.
We hope you enjoy this Newfoundland Molasses Buns recipe.
