A Brief History of Food Recipes

The earliest cookbooks were more than just recipe collections. They consisted of detailed instructions for concocting medicines and potions often interspersed with food preparation pointers to fill in a page. Among the oldest surviving recipes are three clay tablets housed in the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. It is from the Old Babylonian period, around 1700 BC. The oldest surviving document in the West that we would call an actual cookbook is the Apicius, also known as De re culinaria or De re coquinaria (On the Subject of Cooking). It is a collection of Roman cookery recipes. It is thought to have been compiled in the 1st century AD and is cited by Pliny the Elder in his Natural History (77 AD). It can be viewed at the New York Academy of Medicine in New York City. Individual recipes are older than these earlier cookbooks. In fact, there are many recipes in use today that date back to ancient times with cheesecake being a worldwide favorite. Cheesecake was the tasty culinary discovery of the Greeks. This creamy and delicious food recipe featured a thick, delicious layer of sweetened cheese and a buttery biscuit crust. The recipe used a simple mixture of honey, flour, and soft cheese. This made a light, subtly flavored cake often served at weddings and other festivities. The cheesecake recipe was modified by the Romans through the addition of eggs as well as crushed cheese. They called it savillum. Lemon or orange zest was added continues to be done to this day. Roman Savillum (Cheesecake) Ingredients: 15 bay leaves 3 eggs 8 Ounces ricotta cheese ½ cup of honey 1 teaspoon grated orange zest 1 teaspoon lemon juice ½ cup all-purpose flower Strawberries can be added to bring up to 21st century tastes Directions: Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Pour some water into a small, oven proof bowl, and place into the oven. Arrange the bay leaves over the bottom of the springform pan to cover. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl, then mix in ricotta cheese, honey, orange zest, and lemon juice. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until evenly combined. Gently pour the batter over the bay leaves, being careful not to disturb them too much. Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 35 to 40 minutes. Run the tip of a paring knife around the edges of the pan, and release from the springform pan. Invert onto a serving plate and serve warm or chilled.

Disadvantages of Recreating Historical Recipes Disadvantages of ancient recipes is their lack of clarity, unattainable ingredients, and modern measures. Much information can be lost in translating ancient languages. Another important disadvantage is that if you must make any changes at all by substituting ingredients there will be a change in how good the food tastes. Another thing is that changes in location will all change a recipe’s outcome. As an example, altitude changes how well things bake and boil. At sea level the boil temperature of water is 100°C. while at 2000 feet the boiling point is only 98 or 96°. So, one must be aware of the location a recipe was composed for to provide best results. In fact, the first person to thoroughly analyze the recipes contained in the 3,700-year-old Babylonian tablets was Jean Bottéro. Bottéro was a French historian born in Valla Uris. He was a major Assyriologist and a renowned expert on the Ancient Near East. He didn’t exactly give the recipes a positive review. He called the food “fit for only his worst enemies.” But, later, Brown University tried to improve on Bottéro’s recipe interpretations. They claimed that they could be made delicious. Its updated recipe for one of the dishes, “Wildfowl Pie” is below: Sumerian Wildfowl Pie For the filling: • 1 raw chicken (or 2 quail or a duck) • 1 leek (or onion) • 4 shallots (or small onions) • 4 cloves garlic • 3 tbsp fresh mint leaves • 3 tbsp cumin • 3 tbsp cinnamon • 1 tbsp salt • 1/4 cup honey • 2 tbsp semolina (or whole-wheat flour) • 1 cup milk • 1 tbsp olive oil • 1 tbsp vinegar • 2 cups cider or light beer For the crust: • 3 cups semolina (or whole-wheat flour) • 1/2 cup rendered fat (or Crisco or butter) • 2 teaspoons salt • 1 cup milk Directions: Chop up the leek, 3 of the shallots, and the garlic, and caramelize them in 1 tbsp olive oil (add a little more if they’re sticking to the pan). Make sure everything has turned nice and tan. Toward the end, throw in the cumin and cinnamon, so they’ll get toasted and release their flavors. Put the chicken (on the bone), the caramelized leek / shallot / garlic mixture, salt, vinegar, honey, milk, and beer into a pot, cover it, and set it to simmer (about 125° C / 250° F). It takes about 45 mins to an hour to become tender. After 40 mins or so, when the chicken is almost cooked (just barely a little pink), throw in the last shallot (chopped), mint leaves, and semolina. Stir until you’ve got a sort of chicken salad, with a little light gravy. Remove as many bones as you can, to get a nice pie filling. Make the pie crust. Knead the semolina, salt and rendered fat, adding milk as necessary to get a dough that’s sticky, but still moist enough to mold. Preheat oven to 175° C / 350° F. Coat a pie pan with butter or olive oil, then press in about 2/3 of the crust. Spoon in the pie filling. Roll out the rest of the crust into a circle and press it on top of the pie. Brush the top lightly with melted butter (this will make it nice and crusty) and poke a few holes

Types of Rock Music

Ever thought of spending a week without music? If yes, then the time will give you a very good amount of pain and agony. Without music, life becomes monotonous and still. Music gives us an insight into ourselves and lets us understand ourselves in more detail. And particularly, rock music has been able to lift people out of depression very well. Rock music lets one realize the symphony and synergy of the words and lyrics. That’s why to understand rock music in detail. One needs to understand its types. Here are some popular types of rock music nowadays: – 1- Alternative Rock Alternative Rock Music emerged in the mid-1970s and became immensely popular in the 1990s. It was mostly loosely defined and struck the people who loved the lyrics and the music. It had some of the most unorthodox vocals. Alternative Rock destroyed almost every guideline, giving boundaries to the music. For example, the length guidelines were also not followed. Some of the most famous bands and artists of Alternative Rock Music are Nirvana, Radiohead, Pixies, etc. 2- Rap Rock Rap rock had its unique nature of ultra aggressiveness with a perfect blend of the testosterone-carrying voice of the artists. What most people describe rap-rock as the rap flow with a great sense of the mixture of ups and down in the music. Famous artists and bands in the rap-rock genre are Linkin Park, Kid rock, etc.  3- Punk Rock Punk Rock emerged in transition with rap and alternative rock music. It had the features of both alternative and rap-rock. It had short but crisp lyrics. The songs were usually fast-paced with a beautiful melodious voice. Punk Rock touched people’s hearts and was appreciated by all types of music- listeners. Some of the most famous bands and artists of punk rock are Ramones, Green Day, The Clash, Misfits, Black Flag, etc. 4- Grunge If there is rock music with the least number of musical instruments, then it is no other than grunge rock. It used a minimal number of instruments but didn’t compromise the quality of the music. The guitar used in grunge was of high chord and produced a very heavy sound, thus making it more aesthetic. Intense vocals and dark lyrics were also unique characteristics of grunge rock. Some of the most famous bands and artists of grunge rock music that have shaped the course of rock music are Mudhoney, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, etc. 5- Classic Rock It was the mother of all types of rock music. It was primarily the first type of rock music to be originated. Classic Rock has used the guitar as a musical instrument to the fullest and fairly used it in simple progressions. The lyrics were the main fodder for the audience. It was lyrics that defined classic rock. Some of the most famous bands and artists of classic rock music are The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Nobel laureate Bob Dylan, etc.
