The way we cook our food has changed dramatically over the years, from eating raw foraged or hunted food, to cooking over fire, creation of pots, utensils and tools, wood burners, cast iron ovens to our modern day versions and the variety of gadgets and gizmos we use to help us prepare our food. Cooking has never been easier and yet, we still rely on recipes to tell us what we need to do.
Recipes have developed over time and the creation of recipe books and of course cooking programs, you can read about, and watch first hand, dishes being prepared and explained by top chefs or specialists in a certain culinary area. Traditional, tried and tested recipes have been developed and perfected over time. With our current technology it has never been easier to find and try new recipes too from all over the world. As well as magazines, books and television food channels, there are also many recipes available online with many websites now dedicated to the creation and sharing of free and delicious recipes often with pictures or videos to give extra advice and demonstrate how the recipes can be created by you at home.
