Recipes: Delicious Words of Art

The recipe, a written or printed set of instructions on preparing a meal, has quite a storied history. The word itself, from the identically spelled Latin word, used to function as the imperative form of the word “take”, and was written at the top of prescriptions by pharmacists to instruct their patients how much medicine to apply or ingest. Naturally, the meaning has changed a little over the years, and now typically refers to a collection of ingredients and specific preparation needed for various foods. Recipes can be kept a variety of ways, from individual recipes scribbled on note cards and passed down through a family to ornate print-on-demand cookbooks that many modern chefs are opting to use as collection vessels for their various stashes of food preparation techniques.

The contents of recipes have changed a great deal as well. Where recipes found as far back as ancient Egypt called for the judicious use of local herbs and spices, the chefs of today have a wealth of exotic options at their disposal. From unique foreign produce like starfruit or bok choy sold right at the supermarket to gourmet bacon available to buy on the internet, there is almost no food or flavoring that an industrious chef can’t make his or her own. Regional wines, specialized cooking vessels from other countries, and even the internet have all led to a massive expansion of multi-cultural foods being served up on tables everywhere. Even pasteurization and air tight seals have changed recipes – the busy multi-tasking chef can reach for a bottle, can, or jar to speed up the food prep process in a recipe with many different components.

As food technology progresses, food enthusiasts have a sneak peek into the future with molecular gastronomy recipes, which chefs are also calling modern cooking. These recipes use extracts such as agar-agar, a seaweed derivative, to thicken food and change the texture and form without changing the flavor. Popular techniques include encapsulating food, freezing or warming foods that are typically the opposing temperature, and even binding meat proteins together to make a truly “cohesive” dish. As diner’s palates grow more and more complex, futuristic cooking techniques like these will enable chefs to turn familiar foods into a unique edible experience. Recipes like molecular gastronomy are the best way to channel a chef’s talent into a skill that can be replicated by another chef and gently altered as they see fit.
