Stuart Press: Cooking Techniques & Equipment 1580-1660

Cooking Techniques and Equipment 1580-1660 Volumes 1 and 2 by Stuart Peachey. Published by Stuart Press as part of the Early Seventeenth Century Food Series. First edition 1994. © Historical Management Associates Ltd. 1994

Volume 1: A5 paperback booklet. Pages are numbered 1-52. ISBN 1 85804 051 5.

Volume 2: A5 paperback booklet. Pages are numbered 53 – 108. ISBN 1 85804 052 3.

The following is extracted from the Introduction:

“These booklets aim to outline the workings of the seventeenth century kitchen at a variety of social levels. They attempt to study the equipment in use, it’s nature and the techniques employed with it. They do not include menus, recipes and ingredients which are dealt with by other works in the series.

Warning: The seventeenth century cook did not have the benefit of modern medical knowledge and the inclusion of ingredients, methods or equipment in these books in no way implies that they are safe or legal to use.”

Each book includes a small number of contemporary illustrations and it should be noted that Volume 1 includes the Contents for both books and Volume 2 includes the Glossary, Abbreviations and Bibliography for both books.

Some signs of corrosion to the staples, but the binding is secure and all content is virtually as new.
