The History of Recipes

Experts have tracked the existence of recipes back into the distant past, at least as far as pharonic Egypt, and maybe even further. Having said that, mostly, these ancient records were just primitive hieroglyphic or cunieform recipes for preparing food.

Fascinatingly, the oldest recipe in existence, according to experts are a few stone tablets in Sumerian which recount the baking of bread which is then used to make a drink, quite possibly a form of beer as it is recorded as having made drinkers feel exhilarated.

Progressing into The time of the roman empire around 25BC a man called Apicius compiled some scripts detailing recipes prepared by wealthy Romans. In his scrolls, he tells us how the roman meals were split into hors d`oeuvre, entrees and dessert, a very modern way of dining. He also recounts how the ancient chefs were skilled in the use of a good variety of aromatic flavors, including a few that will be familiar to modern chefs such as basil, fennel and parsley.

Over the following few centuries, the rich families of Europe competed to lay on the most exotic banquets, and as a consequence, the best cooks and their collection of recipes became highly prized. Notwithstanding that, it wasn`t until the 1800s that fine cookery and cookery books rose to prominence. The Famous Mrs Isabella Beeton in the UK, and the equally famous Fannie Merritt Farmer in the USA, devoted much of their lives to collecting, trying out, and publishing the recipes that were being prepared for the better households.

By the arrival of the twentieth century, recipe books were highly popular mostly due to more people being able to read, people having more spare time and disposable income.
