“As bread is the staff of life, forming the greatest portion of the sustenance of mankind,” the author begins, “it is very singular, in all the books of domestic economy, and even on cookery, the art of baking bread has not been sufficiently examined and explained...” Written and published by John Cochrane in 1797 with the financial backing of Earl Spencer, whose interests laid particularly in the wellbeing of the British navy. Cochrane presents very methodical instructions for making bread using either yeast (barm) or leaven (old dough) for not only sailors, but also public bakers and private housekeepers. He also offers valuable insight into period construction techniques used to make earthen ovens. Faithfully reproduced in this 56-page pamphlet, as it would have been sold to the public.
