Cookery is literally defined as ‘the art, technology and craft of preparing food for consumption with the use of heat.’ The basic requisite of cooking is heat. Until technology started spitting out advanced kitchen ware like microwave ovens, toasters and grills, the heat source for cooking was but one - fire, and it’s by product - coal. Anthropologists assert that the activity of preparing food with fire can be traced back to 2,50,000 years ago.
Cooking is an ancient art, and existed well before CNG was forced into a cylinder. While cooking methods and ingredients diverge broadly through the world, the basics of cookery remain the same. The techniques of cooking span from grilling food over a fire or by means of electric stoves, to baking in many sorts of ovens. While the original Indian oven is made of stone and is known as the tandoor, the original Europian oven is wooden. While the small details differ, the core of cookery across the human race and its cultures is quite similar. Of course, in different parts of the world, based on unique environmental, economic, and cultural traditions and trends, the available ingredients, both agricultural, and poultry the evolution of cooking has branched out giving us unique recipes from over the world.
Today, globalisation has all these branches of cookery amalgamating with one another. Find cook books from across the world at Happyroar.com, and make international cuisine in your home.
