While our ancestors left us with fine art and music they did not leave us with a comprehensive “cookbook” until around 1907.

Hard to believe huh, but it’s true. Auguste Escoffier wrote the very first “comprehensive” cookbook in modern history.

Many “chefs” have tried to replicate dishes from history, and most not the greatest results.

Recipes from any earlier, are just a guess.

Those recipes you’re watching are most likely a SWAG on cooking methods, techniques and ingredients, nothing more and nothing less.

But they generate money……..

Chef cooking in a modern kitchen where the recipe has to be exact every-time because your cooking for a lot of people I buy what your saying about "comprehensive" cookbook being in 1907.

Other cookbooks have been written earlier then that date. googled in a few sec's. https://theculturetrip.com/europe/ar...-in-the-world/

My intent was not the recipe's but the open fire style of cooking showing that when SHTF. We don't have to suffer with beans and rice everyday over a fire lol.

Jeff even you have to agree there is more than one way to clear a room or a building end results are what matter.
Its free to watch hes not getting money from me other then clicks.

I've been watching him for years.

Some of the recipes are a bit complicated but use simple ingredients.

Loved the one where he made a pot out of dough and cooked meat in it. Also the baked bean one cooked in the ground.

If you cruise around in his clips you will find some interesting subjects related to "off the grid" "survival" stuff. This clip of preserving eggs is interesting.

As to cook books, they go back a long ways. During the Civil War many news papers ran cooking columns about using what you had - especially in the south.

When my wife and I were researching our planned blue-water retirement she found an article in which one cruising couple coated their eggs with petroleum jelly. We decided that shortening would be safer and better. The slaked lime sounds excellent but carrying an item on a small sailboat that has limited use is a non-starter. Of course, unless disaster hit, when sailing offshore you're not at sea more than a couple of weeks at a time anyway.

As for "cookbooks", on my mother's side, they were mostly just family recipes passed down from one generation to the next. Given that her mother's line has been traced back to the Mayflower, it's possible that some recipe for something came from that period. But it would have been lost when my grandmother died since my mother relied on "modern" cookbooks.
