If you have any interest in reading about how people used to eat and cook, then it's a very nice easy read that will amuse and also provide insight on the growth of food preparation when you compare the ingredients and techniques to how you cook today.

Just a list of books. Very few have recipes. I was hoping for old different recipes. What I found was mostly trite hackneyed Jello salads and green bean cassaroles from the fifties. The older recipes I did find had totally nebulous measurements i.e. 2 tosses of flour or a fist of sugar. Many had no amounts just a list of ingredients. A few were interesting however very few.

I was hoping to also see recipes but the information on old cookery books was interesting. If you are a cookbook addict like I am, you are going to enjoy this.

This book was written in 1906, It has recipes (spelled receipt in the book) from the 1600s I found it fascinating.

I'm used to the wordy writing of the early previous century. In fact, in some cases, I like the drollery, the classical references, the opinionated view of the authors of those times. It is a vanity publication of the author who was a well-known British attorney circa 1834 to 1913. So be prepared for sly references to classics in other languages, like French and Latin, poetry, and personages through the ages that are no longer discussed in today's general education. This is about old cookery books and ancient cuisine in an historical overview from the author's preferences. It does not give recipes, although bits of them appear in frequent quotations of more ancient authors than this. So I kind of like it, so I can go look up the people or old texts he referenced, but his archness makes my eyebrows ache from trying to keep up with him, it becomes tiresome. I'm about half way through, and its a bit of a slog. I'm thinking my grandkids would not make it past the first page. But, if you like following the research path there is plenty to look up to keep busy for a while and discover new facts, histories, authors by serendiptity, my favorite way to learn.
