The History of Recipes

It is possible to trace the history of written recipes back into ancient history, in fact as far back into history as the early Egyptians, and maybe further still. Interesting though that is, generally, these old recipes were just very basic hieroglyphic or cunieform instructions for preparing meals.

The truth of the matter is, the most ancient recipe discovered, according to academics is a collection of stone tablets in Sumerian which describe the making 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 blissful.

Later on, in The time of the roman empire around 25BC a man called Apicius created some scripts showing how to cook the recipes enjoyed by his fellow Romans. In his scrolls, he tells us how the meals of wealthy Romans were split into starters, main meal and desserts, a style of dining still practiced today. Aspicius describes how the early Romans made use of a wide range of spices, including a few that will be familiar to modern cooks such as bay, fennel and asafoetida.

As we move on, we have some books dating from the 14th Century - a cookery book entitled `Forme of Cury`, and another titled `Curye on Inglish`. Despite their titles, they have no connection with the indian curry that is popular today, but instead descriptions of the types of food enjoyed by the nobility of the period.

Later, in the fifteenth century, knights returning from the crusades brought back a variety of foods, spices and herbs from the holy lands, including coriander, parsley, and rosemary. The introduction of these new culinary ideas was responsible for an explosion in books on cookery, many of which are kept safe in private collections.

The arrival of television brings us TV chefs and the accompanying recipe books.

And that brings us to the present day and the invention of computers and the internet, permitting everybody to search through massive numbers of recipes just like those on this recipe site.
